Behavioral Health Emergency

National University does not provide 24/7 crisis response. If you or someone near you is experiencing a life-threatening emergency dial 9-1-1 immediately.

If you have thoughts of harming yourself or know someone who does, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or chat here.

Current students at NU can connect with a mental health professional 24/7 through TimelyCare’s “Talk Now” feature. Connect by entering your student email address at www.timelycare.com/nationaluniversity or download the TimelyCare app from your App Store.

If you are University staff, faculty, or student and are concerned about another member of our community (without life-threatening emergency), please complete this Student Referral and a member of the University staff will be in touch soon.
