Are you in crisis?
A crisis is any situation in which a student’s actions, feelings and behaviors can lead them to hurting themselves or others and/or put
them at risk of being unable to care for themselves or function in their community in a healthy manner. Situations that can lead to a crisis can
include stress at home like conflicts with friends and family members, exposure to trauma or violence. Stress about work or academics and other
environmental stress can also contribute to a crisis. Students with a diagnosed mental illness are at greater risk of experiencing crisis, but too
often, a crisis occurs before a mental illness has been diagnosed.
