Urgent Concerns and Emergencies

At times students experience crises (e.g., the death of someone close to them, difficult news from home, sexual assault), feel confused and disoriented, recognize that their functioning is impaired, or are at risk for harming themselves or someone else. If you feel that you cannot wait for an appointment, please let us know that you need to be seen immediately and we will be sure to accommodate you.
