Situations Requiring Immediate Referral
(Recognizing Signs of Students At-Risk for Suicide)
If a student makes a direct or indirect reference to suicide, bring him/her immediately to Counselling or ask a counsellor to come to your area.
Judgment about the seriousness of the circumstances should not be made without consultation from a mental health professional. After hours,
contact Campus Security (Emergency Contacts - Campus),
the Mobile Crisis Team 24/7 (519-744-1813 or toll free 1-866-366-4566), or the Emergency Dept. of your local hospital.

suicide attempt, call 911 and Campus Security.
