For students who are concerned about their ability to keep themselves or others safe or are currently experiencing significant emotional distress, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers walk-in Crisis Consultations each day. We encourage students to come to CAPS Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm so that we can best address your concerns.

If you would like to speak with a clinician outside of the hours of Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm, please call CAPS to consult about options for support. Please note, if you call outside of our normal business hours, you will receive a voice message directing you to additional options for support depending on your particular circumstances.
