Crisis Intervention

Crisis Intervention

The Counseling Office is typically open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The counselor works on an appointment basis, but in most instances, the counselor should be able to respond to a mental health emergency during those hours. If a particularly urgent situation (for example, suicidal thoughts or sexual assault) presents itself during counseling office hours, a student can contact our office and report the need for immediate attention. We will then make every effort to respond promptly. Unfortunately however, crisis situations do not always occur during the work hours of our staff.

After hours and other options for crisis situations include:

Schuylkill County Crisis Intervention 570-628-4731 or 800-344-8094
Crisis Intervention Counseling (24 hour) 877-9WE-HELP
