GET HELP IMMEDIATELY.
CALL THE COUNSELING CENTER at 247-7212 during business hours, or bring the student to the Counseling Center (260 Noble Hall) and describe the crisis.
It is a crisis if the student:
CALL THE POLICE AT 911(on or off campus)
Faculty, staff and students are asked to call the Counseling Center and consult with the "on call" counselor when they encounter a potentially suicidal student. Please let the Counseling Center's secretary know you need to consult about a potential crisis and how serious the situation may be. The "on call" counselor will evaluate with you how to best approach the case. It is hoped that the individual calling will be able to encourage the student to voluntarily come to the Counseling Center for an assessment or counseling.
If the student is not willing to voluntarily come for an assessment and the situation seems potentially dangerous, then it is possible that the "on call" counselor might decide on any of the following actions:
