In Times of Crisis and Emergency

The Student Wellness Center’s counseling department is available 24/7 to provide intervention for students who need to be seen immediately due to a crisis situation.

  • During regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm): Students can either call 860-832-1926 or walk-in to the Student Wellness Center to be seen by a counselor.  Please let the receptionist know that you are experiencing a mental health crisis and need to speak to a counselor immediately.  Examples of a mental health crisis may include thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else, engaging in life-threatening behavior, or a recent assault or other traumatic experience.
  • After hours and on weekends: Students can call the CCSU police at 860-832-2375 or dial 9-1-1 and let the police dispatcher know that you are experiencing a mental health crisis.  The dispatcher will send an officer to your location.  The officer will contact a counselor to talk with you if deemed helpful. 

 

Dial 9-1-1 in all life-threatening and emergency crisis situations or via the numerous emergency “Blue Light” consoles throughout campus or by downloading the LiveSafe App.  .

In any type of crisis emergency, be sure to let the dispatcher know exactly where you are located. Find at least two landmarks around you to help emergency personnel find you. Remain calm and follow the dispatcher's instructions - remember, these are trained professionals.

Suicide Crisis

If You Are in Crisis\

If you are having thoughts of suicide and wish you express your concerns over the phone with a trained crisis worker, you can call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (English) or 1-888-628-9454 (Spanish). It is the only federally funded hotline for suicide prevention and intervention. People who are in emotional distress or suicidal crisis can call the Lifeline at any time, free of charge from anywhere in the Nation, to talk in English or Spanish with a trained crisis worker who will listen to and assist callers in getting the help they need. If you or someone you know are in imminent or immediate danger, immediately dial 9-1-1.
