What To Do in a Crisis
If you are in danger or thinking of hurting yourself or someone else, Midwestern University provides counselors to meet with students experiencing a crisis on the same day. If it is during regular business hours and the counselors are unavailable, please contact the Office of Student Services at 623-572-3210. Otherwise, please call the EMPACT Suicide Prevention Center Suicide/Crisis Hotlines 24 hours/7 days 480-746-4952, National Suicide Prevention at 800-273-8255, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
There is also the Student Assistance Program (SAP). Call anytime 24/7 at (866) 349-5575. You will be directly connected with a licensed counselor. The counselor will be able to assist you with your present concern as well as connect you with a provider in your area if further assistance is needed. It’s a confidential and free service for students.
