Medical Emergency / Suicidal Intention

If you are having a medical emergency or are concerned you will harm or kill yourself call 911.  On campus you can also call 581-4040.   The UMaine Police will direct you to the appropriate resources.

Emotional Distress


If you are in emotional distress call the Counseling Center (581-1392) or come to our office at 125 Cutler Health Center (across from Gannett Hall)

You may call 581-4040 (UMaine Police) and UMaine Police will identify appropriate resources in consultation with the Counseling Center as appropriate.    You may also call 1-888-568-1112 (Northeast Crisis System Phone Help / Crisis Response Line).

Calming Techniques

If you are not in immediate danger and want to attempt to lower your level of distress try some of the techniques below or check out our stress reduction MP3s.  If these don’t help, call during our daytime hours (8-5) and set up and appointment at the Counseling Center.  If your distress is high, please tell that to the receptionist so we can schedule appointments as soon as possible.  In some cases this can be the same day.
