Crisis Hotlines

For Students:

Brookdale has special arrangements for students with the following  “24 hour/7 days a week/365 days per year” emergency resources to call if you are having thoughts of suicide or harming yourself or others.

For Faculty, Staff & Administrators:

The Crisis Hot Line (CHL) is a crisis response and consultative support line for Brookdale faculty, administrators and staff encountering student issues.  It is an internal extension that can be accessed from any Brookdale Campus at X2329. Our external CHL number is 732-224-2329.  Both lines will default to our safety and security department to always insure a 24/7/365 response.
