If you or someone in your program are in immediate danger, call the country's emergency phone number listed in the Important Contacts (below) then follow up with the faculty director and/or DSS at (603) 646-4000 and ask for the dean/counselor on call.
Emergency procedures will be explained to you in more detail during the onsite program orientation. However, the steps below outline basic procedures for most situations.
Illness & Emergency Procedures
In case of illness, or if at any time you feel that your physical safety is threatened, contact your faculty director, onsite support/local program support staff, or the dean/counselor on call at (603) 646-4000.
You may then want to call International SOS (you may call collect toll-free) at (215) 942-8226 for help finding services. When you call, give the group ID number (11BSGC000018) and state that you're a Dartmouth student.
If an incident occurs, the parties listed in the Emergency response communication pathways flow chart within the Guarini Student Handbook will be informed to provide you with instructions on how to get the services you need. You can also find more information through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) if you had previously registered.
Mental Health Crisis Services
If you feel that you may harm yourself or others, please contact the Dartmouth counseling center and/or the counselors at UWill right away.
All Dartmouth students, including those studying internationally, have access to the free, confidential, and available 24/7/365 UWill and its teletherapy services. A student does not have to be registered on the UWill platform to use this crisis line service at (833) 646-1526 and can talk directly with a crisis counselor who can provide support to a student located anywhere in the world (US or internationally). Students have been using UHelp and report that calls have been answered quickly, and the crisis counselors were helpful.
Students may also call the Dartmouth Counseling Center at (603) 646-9442 anytime. During business hours, ask for the counselor-on-call.
If after hours, students will get a voicemail directing them to speak with a mental health crisis service provider (option 1) OR the counselor on-call (option 2).
Students on domestic programs can also call or text 988 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
