Emergency and Crisis Contacts

Students are advised to call 911 for any emergency situation including suicide attempt, alcohol or other drug overdose, or imminent threat of violence. If you call 911 from any campus telephone, your call will automatically be connected simultaneously to the 911 dispatch center and to our campus Public Safety and Health Services departments.

For situations involving a psychological crisis with no imminent threat of danger, contact Counseling and Wellness Services staff during normal business hours for immediate assistance. A counselor will assess the level of risk for harm, assist the individual in achieving stability, and make appropriate treatment recommendations, as needed.
