Students, faculty, staff, and teaching assistants are essential when it comes to preventing suicide and promoting help-seeking behaviors among their peers. UHS offers consultation with concerned third parties.
24-hour crisis services
If your situation is immediately life-threatening, call 911 or get safely to the nearest hospital emergency room.
If you're thinking about suicide, or if you’re concerned for the well-being of someone you know, call UHS to speak with an on-call crisis counselor who will help address your most pressing concerns, assess your safety, and help connect you with follow-up service needs.
608-265-5600 (option 9)
This service is always available, including weekends, holidays, semester breaks, and all summer.
We receive calls from students, but also from family members, partners, friends, roommates, faculty, housing staff, and other campus community members who are concerned about a student.
