COVID-19 Update: We understand that this is a confusing and perhaps scary time for students. The College is committed to providing support and our Pirates CARE team is available to assist. If you would like to speak with someone please use this link: PiratesCare/COVID19. You can also text “GULF” to 741741 to be connected with a crisis counselor.
The Pirates CARE team is a group of faculty and staff from across Pensacola State College who meet weekly to discuss students of concern, conduct threat assessments, and help in responding to crisis situations and critical events on campus. The Pirates CARE Team assists the College community in helping students who are experiencing a crisis or difficulty outside of the classroom by connecting students with both on and off campus resources. The Pirates CARE Team understand that students may face situations beyond academics where assistance is needed in order to help a student be successful. Members of the Pirates CARE Team also oversee issues related to student behavior as well as academic misconduct.
Safety is a top priority at Pensacola State College and we recognize there are times when College community members may be exhibiting behavior that is concerning. Along with providing resources to our students, the Pirates CARE Team has members who are able to conduct campus threat assessments of both students and employees when needed.

The following links provide some good information about preventing suicide, warning signs and how to access help, but no web search can be a substitute for getting help from a caring trained professional. This is true whether you are considering suicide or are concerned about someone else.
