Students often encounter a great deal of stress and other challenges during their college years. The Dean of Students Office and the Case Western Reserve University community are committed to helping students overcome these obstacles, providing a number of resources that support students individually, as well as our broader community. Whether you are looking for resources for yourself, or for someone else, please review the linked support resources and services.
Consultation Regarding Students in Distress/Crisis
If you are worried about a student's immediate safety, please call Case Police at 216.368.3333.
Consultation over the telephone is available with a staff member of UHCS at 216.368.5872. When a student demonstrates or discloses thoughts of suicide or dangerous behaviors, faculty, staff or students may contact UHCS for a consultation.
After hours, weekends or holidays, in the event of a mental health emergency or to consult about a student in distress, call 216.368.5872 and follow the prompts to speak to a counselor by phone.
Some signs to watch for include profound depression, thoughts of suicide, self injury (cutting), frightening anger and/or threats of violence toward others; active anxiety attacks; cognitive confusion, incoherence, disorientation, or grandiose thoughts; or signs of excessive alcohol or drug use.
