Crisis Assistance (for life-threatening emergencies call 911 or, from a campus phone, 758-5911)
After-hours and weekend crisis assistance from University Counseling Center staff is available by calling Student Health Service (336.758.5882). This service is not available when Student Health Service is closed during certain holiday periods, typically Spring, Fall and Winter Breaks; Easter Weekend and Thanksgiving, or providing only daytime clinic hours, e.g., during summer sessions. During these periods, crisis assistance may be obtained from the following local resources:
North Carolina Baptist Hospital ED 336.713.9000
Forsyth Medical Center ED 336.718.2001
WFU Police 336.758.5911
Also, two national organizations are available 24-7:
National Hopeline Network 1.800.SUICIDE or 1.800.784.2433
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1.800.273TALK or 1.800.273.8255
Appointments may be scheduled by telephone or in-person, but not by e-mail or voice mail. Cancellations of appointments may be made by telephone, e-mail, voice mail or in person.
The University Counseling Center, however, suggests caution in the use of e-mail as a means of communication with us given the potential for violations of confidentiality.
