We're Here to Help
A crisis is a time of intense emotional difficulty, trouble, or danger. We help those experiencing an emotional/mental health crisis by providing immediate and short-term assistance. A student will meet with a counselor who will listen to and assess their unique needs. Depending on the individual situation this can include recommendations to seek immediate assistance in an emergency room or nearby behavioral health facility. In less critical situations, students can be provided referrals for support services. Examples include: mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence, grief support, etc.
