A situation is a mental health emergency if the individual poses a danger to themselves or others.
- Call the Department of Public Safety at 609-258-3333, 911 from a campus phone or activate a blue light phone. Stay on the phone while the dispatchers assist you.
- Stay with the individual and offer them reassurance.
