HELP! My friend drank too much. 

Calling 9-1-1 for help is not a crime. Learn what to do in an alcohol emergency (and review the Good Samaritan Protocol).



Call 607 255-5155 

Members of the Cornell community can call Gannett any time of day or night, every day of the year, to talk with a health care provider about a mental or physical health concern. We will help you determine what care you need, and how and when to get it. 

When you call after-hours, Gannett's answering service will answer the phone. Just leave your name and the phone number at which we can reach you. Please stay by your phone: the on-call health care provider will return your call within 30 minutes. If you don't get a call back, please call again. On rare occasions, the correct phone number gets lost in translation.  

Having trouble getting reaching us? We occasionally experience difficulty with our phone line after-hours. If the Gannett phone number does not connect you with a person, please call the Cornell University Police at 607 255-1111. The dispatcher will contact the on-call provider directly.
