Here at HKUMed, we treat student crises and emergency situations seriously with precedence. The main goal and role of Student Wellness Team, in time of crisis and emergencies, is to help our students to re-establish immediate coping skills, provide support, and restore to pre-crisis functioning.
When a student in crisis and/or an emergency is identified, the Student Wellness Team will immediately direct attention, provide appropriate assessments and clinical interventions to assist the student. If the situation is outside our scope of practice, we will seek immediate help from the appropriate authorities (e.g. Ambulance Services).
If you are aware of anyone in emotional distress with imminent risk during office hours, please notify the Student Wellness Service Team immediately.
