Psychological Crises

Be alert for signs of inappropriate behavior or threatening comments.  An emotionally unbalanced person may be attempting to draw attention to himself or herself as a way to get help.  This behavior should be reported to a university official immediately.

·NEVER try to handle a psychological crisis on your own if you feel the situation is dangerous.

·If on campus, notify the University Police Department of the situation, dial 7-2141 from a campus line or 724-357-2141 from a non-university phone. 

·If off campus, call 911.

·Northpointe and Punxsutawney regional campuses and Monroeville Center: call 911.

·Clearly state that you need immediate assistance; give your name, exact location, and the nature of the incident.

·Contact the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 7-2621 from a campus phone or 724-357-2621 from a non-university phone.  Other hours, call the Open Door at 724-465-2605.
