Crisis Assistance

During the fall and spring semesters, the University Counseling Center provides staffing for mental health crises 24 hours a day. During between 8:30am-5:00pm Monday-Friday, walk-in and same-day urgent appointments are available for students who may be at an elevated mental health risk, including:

  • Current or recent thoughts of harm to self or others,
  • Concerned about the safety of another person,
  • Experience of a recent trauma,
  • Experiencing hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking and/or behavior, or have been unable to sleep for two or more days.

For mental health crises after 5:00pm and on the weekend you can reach the counselor on-call by contacting the Student Health Service (336.758.5218), or University Police (336.758.5911).

Urgent appointments are not used for academic concerns (for concerns related to courses or academic issues see the Office of Academic Advising).
