See below the steps to take in the event of an emergency situation and resources Texas A&M University offers.

A) If you encounter an emergency situation, call 911.

B) If you encounter a student exhibiting concerning behavior, but it is not an emergency situation, you can file a report on the Tell Somebody website. Reports can be filed anonymously if you wish.

C) The Tell Somebody website contains information about other on-campus numbers that you can call if you have more specific concerns.

D) Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides a wide range of services from crisis to routine. In a crisis situation, students can either go by the CAPS office (on the fourth of the Student Services Building) during normal business hours, or call the HelpLine at (979) 845-2700, which is operational from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. on weekdays and 24 hours on the weekends. For urgent or more routine cases, students can look at options listed on the CAPS webpage. This is not an avenue for you to “report” someone else, but you may wish to encourage other students to take advantage of the services that CAPS provides.

E) If you are able to make the time to do so, CAPS offers a suicide-prevention training seminar called Question Persuade Refer on a regular basis. If you would like to participate in this training but are unable to attend a session, please email Dr. Leyk. If there is sufficient interest, we can schedule a training seminar for interested peer teachers at a different time.
