Any reference to suicide should be taken very seriously, and a referral to the Counseling Center is vital; the Director of Counseling should also be contacted immediately. If the reference includes mention of a suicide plan, immediate response is especially critical.
When faced with a mental health emergency during business hours, please contact the Counseling Center directly at 828-898-8841.
After business hours call Campus Security at ext. 8756, a member of the Residence Life Staff, or New River Behavioral Health Crisis Line at 828-733-5889.
If you are concerned about imminent danger to the student or others, contact the Campus Security Office and ask them to send an officer right away.
Also, do not hesitate to call 911. Be prepared to give any contact as much information as necessary.
