Mental Health Emergencies and Suicide Prevention

A mental health emergency is an emotional or behavioral crisis that requires same-day attention by a mental health professional. This may include, but is not limited to, significant changes in behavior that are not typical of a person, disruptive symptoms that interfere with a person's ability to meet the responsibilities of daily living, direct or indirect expressions of the intent to harm oneself or others, and/or the experience of trauma.  If you are feeling that you are a danger to yourself or others:

  • Contact Counseling and Wellness Services immediately. You can reach us by telephone at 937-775-3407. 
  • Go to your local hospital emergency department.
  • Call the Raider Cares line. Raider Cares is Counseling and Wellness Services’ 24-hour crisis phone service.  You can reach the Raider Cares Line by calling 833-848-1765 [TTY: 314-485-4345].
  • Text to the Crisis Text Line. The Crisis Text line offers 24-hour, 7-days text contact with trained crisis counselors—reach them by texting "LISTEN" to  741-741. The Crisis Text Line is NOT affiliated with Counseling and Wellness Services or Wright State University.
