Emergency Resources for Everyone: Please Read

By January 9, 2018Uncategorized

Dear Students,

I have compiled the below phone numbers for resources that could be helpful to you or your peers. As you know, the various support services of K-State have been taxed for a variety of reasons. That said, there are other resources that can help you or your friends.

We are part of a community and it is our responsibility to be on the look out for those in need. If you are concerned about a student or are in need yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me (sbskelton@ksu.edu) or K-State’s Office of Student Life at 785-532-6432. There is no shame in seeking help for yourself or others. The numbers below provide a variety of services for free or at a greatly reduced rate. Of course, if the situation is an emergency, calling 911 is your best choice for immediate results. If you have other resources, please include them in the comments below.  – Shannon
