Mental Health Crisis Support
Most services at Student Health Psychological Services require a scheduled appointment, but there are situations when students may require more immediate assistance. Psychological Services offers same-day crisis hour appointments if you have an urgent matter to address. Some reasons to attend a crisis hour appointment may include, but are not limited to
- Thoughts of self-harm
- Thoughts of harming others
- Panic or excessive anxiety
- Experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event
- Death of friend or family member
- Extreme changes in mood
- Difficulty coping with intrusive thoughts
- Recent assault or abuse
If you are experiencing an urgent matter, please visit Student Health or call at (562) 985-2451 Ext. 2321. Upon arrival you may be asked to briefly fill out incoming paperwork. A therapist will then meet with you shortly after.
Student Health is open 8:00 am to 4:30 pm from Monday to Thursday, and 8:00 am to 12:00 pm on Friday during the academic year. Please call Student Health for summer hours. Several options are available if you are experiencing an urgent matter after hours.
