Most people associate 911 with medical emergencies. However, 911 also assists with emergencies such as someone seriously considering suicide.
You are a U.T. student who is experiencing a personal crisis:
UT students may call CMHC Crisis Line at 512-471-CALL (2255) (UT Students Only) to speak with a trained counselor about their situation. For Deaf/HH students please dial 711 and ask to be connected to (512) 471-2255. Students may also come to CMHC anytime Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 5 PM to meet face-to-face with a counselor (be sure to tell our reception staff that you need to talk with someone immediately).
Concerns about another person
If you have concerns about a student, faculty, or staff member in the UT community, contact the 24-hour Behavior Concerns Advice Line (BCAL) at 512-232-5050.
