After-Hours Emergency Mental Health Services


When should I use this service?

The after-hours emergency service is available for the undergraduate students who are experiencing a mental health crisis after business hours.

  • Available 5 p.m. - 8 a.m.

  • Monday through Friday, and on weekends

  • During University holidays

  • Any time the UWC is closed

How do I know if I'm in a crisis?

Consider calling if you:

  • Experience serious thoughts about suicide or harm to yourself and worry that you may act upon them.

  • Experience serious thoughts of doing harm to another person and may act upon them.

  • Experience hallucinations (hearing, seeing, feeling things that no one else hears, sees, or feels).  For example, hearing voices, seeing objects or living things not heard or seen by others.

  • Have been recently sexually assaulted.

  • Have recently experienced trauma in the form of witnessing or experiencing sexual and/or physical violence.

I don't believe I'm having a mental health crisis.  What are my options?

  • Wait until the Wellness Center opens (931-598-1325).

  • Check out other available resources via the LifeSave app.

  • Go to the nearest emergency room for evaluation and care: Southern Tennessee Regional Medical Center in Sewanee or Winchester.
