Crisis and Emergency
For Any Life-Threatening Crisis
An emergency or a crisis might involve:
- Thoughts and plans to hurt yourself or someone else
- Engaging in a behavior that is life threatening
- If you have been assaulted, physically or sexually
If you have an immediate life-threatening crisis
What to do in an emergency
Depending upon the nature, location, and timing of an emergency, your options are:
On campus, call the UNCSA Campus Police
The Police will assess the situation, contact the counselor-on-call, and, if necessary, have the person transported to a hospital for care and treatment.
- Dial 55 from any campus phone or (336) 770-3362
Off campus, dial 911
Dial 911 off campus to summon local police who will assess the situation and, if necessary, arrange for transportation of the person to a hospital for care and treatment.
