Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, state Sen. Daniel Thatcher and representatives from the University of Utah Neuropsychiatric Institute, Utah Office of Education and the School Safety and Crisis Line Commission unveiled the SafeUT Crisis and Safety Tipline for Utah Students in January.
The SafeUT Mobile App (Android version) provides students confidential and anonymous two-way communication with SafeUT crisis counselors or school staff via one-touch options to “Call Crisisline,” “Chat Crisisline” or “Submit a Tip.” Students using the mobile app will connect directly to a UNI crisis counselor at the UNI CrisisLine. For those who do not have access to a smart phone, the Lifeline number, 1-800-273-8255, is also supported by UNI.
Students can download the SafeUT Mobile App at any time — and are receiving training on how to use SafeUT Services by their school administrators.
