CARE Advocate Services

Services are available to people of all genders, and the incident does not have to be recent nor does it have to have occurred on campus. The CARE Advocate can explain your options for filing a report as well as your options if you choose not to report. The CARE Advocate can assess your needs, provide emotional support, connect you to resources, provide accompaniment, help you to understand your rights, and facilitate academic and employment adjustments as well as other accommodations.

Watch: Confidental CARE Advocate Denise Caramagno explains how the CARE Advocate can help you.

Need urgent crisis support? Call our 24/7 Care hotline at 415-502-8802

The Care hotline is a 24/7, confidential, free, campus-based resource for urgent, crisis support around sexual assault, sexual harassment, interpersonal violence, stalking, invasion of sexual privacy, discrimination or harassment related to race, ethnicity, national origin or other protected identities. Support is available for UCSF community members as well as those who have been harmed by a UCSF affiliate.


All information shared with the advocate, whether it is information about you or even the fact that you have seen an advocate, cannot be shared with others outside CARE without your consent and written permission. In some circumstances the advocate may consult with a supervisor in order to provide you with the best help available. However, no one outside CARE may have access to your information without your prior written consent or as required by law. However, California law mandates that information may be appropriately shared if you present an imminent risk of serious physical harm to yourself or others.
