Students who are experiencing a psychological or emotional emergency often need immediate help and intervention. Some examples of serious circumstances include:
  1. suicidal or homicidal thoughts or impulses;
  2. sexual or physical assault;
  3. unusual experiences such as seeing or hearing things other people do not;
  4. grief or loss, such as a death in the family.

Consultations about a student of concern: We provide individual consultations for faculty, staff, RAs, or GHAs regarding difficult mental health situations with students. Please call and request to speak with the Triage Counselor. If necessary, please let them know if your concern is urgent.

Crisis appointments will not respond to requests for letters for DSP, SJACS, or other departments.
