Crisis intervention and emergency services

What do I do in case of an emergency during the day?
During business hours, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, for psychological emergencies contact the Counseling Center at 410-543-6070 or go directly to Room 263, Guerrieri University Center (second floor).  If someone is in physical danger, call University Police at 410-543-6222 or 911.

What if the emergency is at night or on a weekend?
After hours, students can call the University Police at 410-543-6222, the Life Crisis Center in Salisbury at 410.749.4357, or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, or go to the nearest emergency room, Peninsula Regional Medical Center located at 100 East Carroll Street, Salisbury.  If the emergency is life threatening, call 911.

What are some community resources in case of emergency?
Life Crisis Center has a 24 hour crisis hotline.  Call 410-749-HELP or 410-641-HELP.  Peninsula Regional Medical Center is located at 100 E. Carroll Street.  The phone number for PRMC is 410-546-6400.

Can I send an email?
Do not use email in an emergency situation, since you cannot be assured that a counselor will open it at your time of need.  Even in non-emergency situations, care should be used when communicating by email since it is not a confidential form of communication
