UC San Diego and our campus community are deeply saddened and disturbed by the escalating violence in the Middle East. We recognize that events and news of this nature can affect everyone differently, and that many in our community are experiencing heightened stress, pain and anxiety as the details continue to unfold. Today, we reemphasize that we are here to support you. Our campus is a place of inclusion, belonging and mutual support, and UC San Diego offers a variety of supportive resources that we encourage you to utilize, particularly in times of increased need.

To support our campus community, UC San Diego is offering counseling, opportunities for open and candid dialogue and mental health support to our students, faculty and staff as they navigate the news of these events.   

Support Resources

Students seeking immediate mental health and coping support are encouraged to reach out to Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). CAPS provides free, confidential counseling and crisis services and community forums for registered UC San Diego students, and can be reached at (858) 534-3755.

Campus employees, staff and postdocs can contact the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) at (858) 534-5523. UC San Diego Health employees can call (866) 808-6205 (use company code UCSDMC) or review information pertaining to the Employee Assistance Program on Health HR's website.
