What is a Mental Health Crisis?

In a mental health crisis, a person’s usual coping style may be overwhelmed. As a result, the person may become disoriented, nonfunctional, or attempt harm to self or others. All suicide threats or attempts should be reported to the Emory Police so that proper procedures may be followed to ensure the safety of those involved.

In 2013 Emory devoloped a free app designed to help people at risk maintain mental health on a daily basis, and keep barriers to accessing treatment at a minimum.  Download the Emory ReliefLink app.  Read more about how the app was developed and Emory continues foster care to our community.
