Counseling Center: Emergency Information

In the event of a medical or safety emergency, please call 911.

The Counseling Center provides direct crisis intervention services that may include on-going counseling, referral to community resources or consultation for students, faculty or staff members facing a crisis situation.

During the Day
If a mental health emergency occurs between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, contact the Counseling Center office at 501-4275. You will be seen by a psychologist/counselor as soon as possible.  Staff and faculty may refer students to the center by calling 501-4275, or may call for consultation related to a student they are concerned about.
