 Crisis Management Resources

​​​​​It is essential to seek immediate support if you are experiencing passive to active suicidal ideation, engaged in any type of suicide planning, and/or engaged in self-harming behaviors.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues need to be taken seriously.  We strongly encourage you to establish mental health treatment for these conditions.  

Critical information for accessing Crisis Management Resources is provided below as well as on the MCHS Institutional Wellness Resources link on the RWBC website. You can also access urgent support via a RWBC consult, where it is important for you to clearly communicate the urgency of your support needs.​​
