A safer U that begins with you. Say hello to the new SafeUT app.

February 08 2018

University of Utah students now have access to the SafeUT app which provides real-time confidential crisis intervention through live chats and calls.  The program is operated and staffed by the University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI).  Students can also submit confidential tips through this free app. 

What is SafeUT Crisis Text & Tip Line?
The SafeUT Crisis Text and Tip Line is a statewide service that provides real-time crisis intervention to youth through texting and a confidential tip program – right from your smartphone.
Licensed clinicians in our 24/7 CrisisLine call center respond to all incoming chats, texts, and calls by providing:
• supportive or crisis counseling,
• suicide prevention,
• and referral services.

We can help anyone with emotional crises, bullying, relationship problems, mental health, or suicide related issues.
Free & Confidential Crisis Services
SafeUT is free and confidential.
If an “active rescue” is necessary – meaning our crisis counselor believes the user is in immediate danger – counselor will alert emergency services to attempt a face-to-face safety evaluation based on the information provided by the user.
