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.
Making Sewanee a stronger, safer community.
