Crisis Response

Washington University is committed to responding as quickly as possible to any mental health emergency on campus. A mental health emergency is an emotional or behavioral crisis that warrants same-day or immediate attention by a mental health professional. This may include, but is not limited to, significant changes in behavior that are not characteristic of a person, the presence of disruptive symptoms that interfere with the responsibilities of dialing living, direct or indirect expressions or the intent to harm self or others, or the experience of a trauma or assault.
