Counseling Services

Psychological Emergency

 

IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS EXPERIENCING A PSYCHOLOGICAL CRISIS THAT REQUIRES EMERGENCY ATTENTION, CALL FOR HELP IMMEDIATELY!

During regular office hours, call Counseling Services at (314) 516-5711.  Please indicate to the receptionist  that this is an emergency situation. We will make sure that a counselor is available.

Office Hours:
Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

If you are with someone who is in crisis, it may be helpful to call us and then walk with the person to the Counseling Services office at 131 Millennium Student Center (located behind The Nosh cafeteria, in the same office with Health Services.)

In cases where it would be dangerous for the person to walk to Counseling Services, we will arrange to have a counselor come to another location on campus. In these cases, you might also want to call Campus Police at (314) 516-5155.

FOR AFTER-HOURS EMERGENCIES call Campus Police at (314) 516-5155. Another crisis resource is Life Crisis Services, (314) 647-HELP (4357). They maintain a 24-hour hotline that is available 7 days a week.
