The LMU Counseling staff does NOT provide 24-hour coverage. If you are experiencing an actual mental health emergency (threat to yourself or others) and need immediate assistance:
Off Campus at ANY TIME
On Campus during operational hours: (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
On Campus AFTER HOURS
Students experiencing a mental health emergency (threat to self or others) will be transported to the local hospital emergency room by ambulance or campus safety officers for safety and liability reasons. As per the law in Tennessee, the local crisis services team will evaluate the student and make approperate referrals. Our primary goal is the safety and well-being of all of our students. The Office of Student Services will contact parents/guardians in the event of a hospitalization, per campus policies and procedures.
