Oregon Mental Health and Crisis Resources

Emergency Mental Health Procedures: Since we do not have round-the-clock medical and mental health care available at George Fox, please use the following emergency health procedures for students. During regular office hours, we recommend students contact the HCC to obtain assistance. However, when this office is closed, follow these guidelines:

On-Campus Students

Contact the student's RA or AC immediately. If their RA or AC is not available, call an AC from another living area. If no AC is available, call the Student Emergency Paging System at 503-554-2090 (ext. 2090) or dial 911.

Off-Campus Students 

If a student feels like harming themselves or others, have them call the appropriate crisis number for their county (George Fox is in Yamhill County):

If these crisis numbers do not provide sufficient assistance, take the student to the nearest hospital emergency room or dial 911.
