Our crisis services are designed to assist students who may be experiencing life-threatening circumstances, current or recent traumatic crises or severe psychological difficulties. These services are not designed to deal with immediate safety issues.
In the event that there are immediate concerns about or threats to someone’s safety, whether that be your own safety or the safety of someone else – call 911 to request that they attend immediately.
Examples of crises that Counselling Services may be able to help with include but are not limited to:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Acute emotional distress of an overwhelming nature
- Thoughts about harming another person
- Recent assault or abuse
- Concern about your own safety
- Knowledge of another person being abused or assaulted
- Hallucinations and delusions
- Recent death of a loved one
- Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event.
