At times of crisis, you may find yourself emotionally overwhelmed or experiencing severe emotional distress. Some examples of crises include: a recent death; sexual assault; having thoughts of suicide or homicide; experiencing hallucinations (seeing or hearing things); being the victim of crime; or any other debilitating concerns. When you feel more immediate help is necessary, our crisis therapists are available.
Crisis services are focused on providing emotional support and resources. Requests for letters will not be provided for DSP, SJACS, or other departments. For letters, please call indicating your need for a letter so that you can be provided a phone assessment.
