Psychological Crisis

A psychological crisis exists when an individual is threatening harm to himself/herself or to others or is out of touch with reality due to a severe drug reaction or a psychotic break. Hallucinations, uncontrollable behavior, or complete withdrawal may manifest a psychotic break.

To report a psychological crisis, call Security and tell the officer the following:

  • Your name
  • Your location
  • The nature and location of the incident
  • Clearly state that you need immediate assistance
  • If it is safe to do so, stay on the line until an officer arrives.
  • Never try to deal with a potentially dangerous situation by yourself
  • Report any suicide attempt to Security
