Getting Help: Know the #’s

It’s OKAY to Ask for Help (for you or someone else)

Together we can create a Suicide-Safer CSUN Community

Remember! Program your cell phone with the University Police number 818-677-2111, which can be used for emergency and non-emergency calls.



  • College students are more likely to confide in their peers, romantic partners, roommates, or friends when they are in distress or experiencing suicidal thoughts.
  • Talking with a peer can be helpful and life-saving.
  • Help is available. The goal is to keep everyone safe. You can help by knowing who you would tell if you were in distress. Be ready to ask or help or encourage your peers to get help.


In the event of an Emergency, call 911.
