When we resume in-person services, on-campus crisis support during business hours:

Crisis counseling sessions can be scheduled from 1-2pm and 3-4pm, Monday through Friday.  Crisis sessions are also available throughout the day on Walk In Wednesdays.

Students will be scheduled for crisis appointments on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be present in the building to schedule. 

Crisis sessions are 30 minutes long and will focus on assessment and planning for an immediate situation.  If a student wants a longer appointment and can wait, they are advised to schedule a regular counseling session.
