Mental Health Emergency Contact Policy

In accordance with the Illinois Student Optional Disclosure of Private Mental Health Act (HB3599), students are to be provided with the opportunity to designate an adult to be contacted if it is determined that a student is experiencing a mental health emergency. The mental health emergency contact will be used when an SXU mental health professional determines the student poses a clear, imminent risk of serious injury or death to self or others. Contact information will be registered confidentially and only accessed by authorized campus officials.

Please log into Self-Service and fill out the emergency contact information, checking mental health emergency contact. The missing person contact and mental health emergency contact do not have to be the same individual. Contact information can be updated at any time through Self-Service. Students are not required to designate a mental health emergency contact.
