Editor’s Note: On June 6 at 3:30 p.m., the Jan. 15 Exclusion* entry was edited to protect the identity and minimize harm of a person who, at the time, was experiencing a mental health crisis and was cooperative in receiving assistance. The Vanguard staff strives to uphold consistent ethical standards of journalism and employs careful consideration when making changes of this nature to previously published material.

Students experiencing mental health emergencies can find help at PSU’s Center for Student Health & Counseling. Community members should refer to SHAC’s directory of mental health resources.
