Crises generally involve a situation where someone’s safety is at risk—a potential life‑or‑death situation.
Suicidal or homicidal gestures or attempts are crisis situations. Persistent thoughts about death or specific ideas about ways to hurt one’s self or others should be treated as a crisis situation.
If someone is suddenly acting very different from usual or doesn’t seem to be making any sense, this could be an emergency, and help should be sought immediately.
If you have been physically attacked (sexually assaulted, mugged, etc.), seek help immediately.
For mental health crises or emergencies during business hours, contact us by phone at 610.902.8561 or in person at Grace Hall, Room 174. If you can not reach us or when the office is closed, please contact Public Safety at 610-902-8111.
