If the student has made a suicide attempt, call 911 for an ambulance, and Safety and Security.
If the student has serious suicidal thoughts or appears to be in a fog or not thinking clearly, they need to be seen immediately. Call the Counseling Office at 646-9442 during office hours (8:00am-4:30pm) or after hours, call the Infirmary at 646-9440 and they will connect you with the Counselor-On-Call. You and the Counselor can make the appropriate arrangements for the student to be seen.
If the student has a few of the risk factors, but denies being suicidal, it makes sense for them to touch base with a counselor. They can call Counseling to set up an appointment at their convenience.
If you are not sure what to do, or how to proceed, call Counseling and ask to speak to the Counselor-On-Call.
If you feel the student needs to be seen by a counselor right away and the student refuses, you can contact the Counselor-On-Call or the Dean-On-Call.
