For Family, Friends, Faculty, or Staff
If you are concerned for someone's safety, your options include:
- Contact a crisis line together if the person of concern is willing.
- Contact a crisis line yourself to talk through your situation and understand your options.

You may also consider submitting a report to the Student Wellness Care Team to ensure that the University is aware of the student's situation and following up with them.
