The Miami University Student Counseling Service has teamed with eReadia LLC to create the Just In Case App. This app provides information to students who are concerned about themselves or a friend who might be at risk.

The Just in Case project was developed in partnership with NASPA (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators), the leading voice for the student affairs profession in higher education worldwide. NASPA president Kevin Kruger said of the Just in Case project:

“We think that the time for mobile delivery of these critical resources is here. Several recent high-profile cases have told us that support for a student undergoing crisis is critical on an 'anywhere, anytime’ basis. But equally important is support for a friend or roommate who may be in a position to intervene and assist in the process of getting help. We believe this tool that turns a smartphone into a lifeline for at-risk students and their concerned friends should be a part of every institution’s suicide prevention strategy.”

The app is customized for Miami and offers strategies for how to approach or interact with a friend who you might be concerned about, as well as emergency information and resources in the area.
