  • A friend or family member
  • If you or a friend/loved one are at immenent risk, call 541-737-7000 on campus or 911 off campus.
  • Even a five-minute delay in acting upon suicidal thoughts can change someone's mind, so keeping lethal means out of someone's hands for even a short time can help save their life!
    • If you or someone you know is considering suicide and have/has access to a firearm, a gun lock can be obtained at the campus Public Safety office on the 2nd floor of Cascade Hall or at CAPS after talking with a counselor. The lock renders the firearm unusable and the key should be kept by a trusted person (not by the person of concern). One can also call Oregon State Police and request that they come remove the firearm and place it in safe keeping (not with crime evidence). DO NOT bring the firearm to Public Safety or any law enforcement agency yourself. Call OSP for a pick-up - the non-emergency number for campus is 541-737-3010. In an emergency, call 541-737-7000 on campus or 911 if you are off campus.
    • Prescription and non-prescription drugs of concern can be placed in the drug drop box located in Cascade Hall right outside the Public Safety office, no questions asked.
  • Concerned about a friend?
