An emergency is any reference to physical harm to oneself or others, violence, or weapons. If a student makes ANY reference to suicide or wanting to die, immediate action must be taken and the situation should be reported immediately. In the case of an emergency, call 911 immediately. State your concern to the student and let them know you are getting them help. Then notify the appropriate campus departments as needed.
During an emergency:
- “I am worried about your safety; I need to get support for you.”
