As our campus continues to operate in a hybrid manner, with both remote and on-campus work and learning, Puget Sound wants to support our students on and off campus who are having a hard time – including those who may be concerned for themselves or a peer about behaviors related to suicide and self-harm.

If there is an immediate threat to someone’s life:

  • On-Campus – Please call Security Services at 253.879.3311 immediately
  • Off-Campus – Please call 911 immediately 

If you are struggling yourself: Visit suicidepreventionlifeline.org/help-yourself or see the resources at the bottom of this page.

Students, Faculty, and Staff: If you are concerned that a student may be engaging in self-harm or considering suicide, please fill out the online report form.  This is a modified version of our Self Harm Report that will allow our Review Team and staff to do our best to connect with and support students who are struggling with these concerns.  

The form goes directly to one of the members of our Review Team during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm). The Review Team will consider the situation and take what action is possible to provide support and intervention. If there is an immediate threat to someone's life:

  • On-Campus – Please call Security Services at 253.879.3311 immediately
  • Off-Campus – Please call 911 immediately 

In addition, please remember that there are national and local resources to get help for yourself or to discuss a friend you’re concerned about, including:

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Chaplain Dave Wright at 253.879.3818 or chaplain@pugetsound.edu
