Supporting Someone in Crisis
It can be difficult to know how to respond when you're concerned someone
may be experiencing a state of crisis. Instead of focusing on finding the right thing
to say, try to approach the individual in an open and non-judgmental way, actively
listening to what they have to say, and affirming their strength. If they are willing
to come to the Health Center, it may be helpful to walk with them. Keep in mind, the
individual has the right to refuse help (unless in a state of emergency) in which
case, you can leave the door open for possible reconsideration. Remember to take care
of yourself and practice self care as these interventions are often emotionally taxing.
Refer to the resources on this page or reach out to Student Health Services if you
need extra support.
