Emergencies

In a life-threatening situation, call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.

At the Student Counseling Center, we understand that sometimes mental health emergencies arise and a student may wish to speak with a counselor immediately. At any time during normal business hours, a student in crisis may contact the SCC and request to meet with a counselor. The SCC staff will determine the appropriate steps to take in each presenting situation. If the SCC is closed, or if a student cannot make it to the SCC, we recommend that they call 9-1-1, go to the nearest Emergency Room, call the suicide helpline (1-800-273-8255), or use the crisis text line (text TALK to 741-741).
