Urgent safety evaluations are available for students who feel they may harm themselves or someone else. Students will be seen briefly by a mental health professional and connected to the appropriate resource.
Because ensuring our students' safety is our highest priority, safety evaluations may result in a call to 911 or transportation to the nearest hospital.
