Emergency & Crisis Information
The Counseling Center provides 24-hour crisis-intervention services throughout the regular academic year for students experiencing mental health crises (e.g. psychological trauma, thoughts of harming self or others). If you or someone you are assisting is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, and you are off campus, call 911 immediately; if you are on campus, call Campus Police at 8888, so they can call 911 and direct emergency vehicles to the correct location.
