Help from Community Agencies
If you are in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.
You have the option of contacting local community agencies for support, which do not have the same obligation as the University to report or investigate incidents.
The following information is provided for the West Lafayette Campus and surrounding areas. For a full list of resources available system-wide, please see the Quick Reference Guide.
Crisis Center Helpline
The Crisis Center Helpline has trained volunteers who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to talk with victims/survivors as well as the family and friends of victims/survivors. When you call, the Crisis Center volunteer-on-duty will gather information to assess the situation and contact the specially trained advocate on call. The advocate will then call you and make arrangements to meet at the hospital, police department, courthouse, or Crisis Center. You can also simply talk to the volunteer-on-duty.
You may contact the Crisis Center Helpline anytime by calling 2-1-1 or 765-742-0244 (24/7/365).
