While most Office of Health and Counseling services are provided by appointment, students experiencing crisis situations may require immediate or same-day intervention. Examples of student situations that require crisis-intervention services include:

  • Students experiencing suicidal thoughts or impulses.
  • Students experiencing homicidal thoughts or impulses.
  • Students who have experienced a sexual or physical assault.
  • Students who are hearing voices or misperceiving reality.
  • Students who are dealing with overwhelming loss, such as the death of a loved one.

Office of Health and Counseling crisis interventions services vary, including working with a student in distress, facilitating psychiatric hospitalization of a student requiring a higher level of care, and working with a group of students who have experienced a traumatic event such as the sudden death of a classmate. The Office of Health and Counseling works closely with the Office of Residence Life and the Campus Police Department in responding to students experiencing various crisis situations and emergencies.
