In order to be able to best serve students who may need crisis care, we define a crisis as an immediate onset of severe psychological symptoms that cannot be mitigated through self-initiated care or support from caring others. Examples may include: urges to harm yourself, plans to harm someone else, hearing voices that aren’t there, the immediate experience of trauma, etc. For non-crisis care please call to schedule an appointment during regular office hours.
