Support and Assistance

Case Managers provide one-on-one support, including interventions, advocacy, referrals and follow-up services for students who are experiencing significant difficulties related to mental health, physical health, family emergencies and/or other areas of concern.

The Case Management staff is committed to assisting undergraduate students in successfully navigating the Johns Hopkins University-Homewood campus. Case Management helps students manage physical and mental health concerns, personal and family emergencies, financial issues, and other obstacles that may arise during their college experience.

Case Managers provide resources and information to help students navigate University systems and policies while prioritizing their wellbeing and academic success. Additionally, Case Managers will assist students in making connections with faculty, staff, and other offices that can collaborate with them to ensure their needs are met. Lastly, the goal is to help students to develop self-advocacy skills that prepare them for involvement in the larger community and life beyond college.

Case Managers work with students who may need to take a Medical Leave Of Absence for physical health or psychological reasons.

Case Management is not counseling or therapy; rather, Case Managers have the opportunity to develop close helping relationships with students while coaching students toward appropriate self-care and self-advocacy.
