If you are experiencing a personal crisis and need immediate counseling support:
If it is daytime Monday – Friday (8am-4:30pm) contact CCHP at 612-330-1707, and let the person answering the telephone know that you are in crisis and need to see a counselor immediately. If it is an emergency and you are unable to reach a staff member during office hours (spring/fall semester), call the Department of Public Safety at 612-330-1717, and they will assist you in contacting CCHP.
If it is after office hours (evenings or weekends, and summer), 24/7 support is available:
1. If you are living on campus and need immediate support, talk to your Resident Assistant, Community Leader, or Hall Director, and they will assist you in obtaining immediate services. You may also call the Department of Public Safety at 612-330-1717 for support in connecting you to the on-call Hall Director, or for support in connecting you to emergency services.
2. If you do not feel safe, go to your local Emergency Room. DPS will give you a ride if you are currently on campus (612-330-1717).
