This is a reminder that both the Counseling & Psychological Services and Health Center offer limited hours and services for students enrolled in May term classes. We are closed for the summer beginning on May 31 and will resume services in the fall beginning on August 15.
In the event of a medical emergency, please …..
* Call 911
* Non-emergent health care needs may be referred to Prime Care.
In the event of a counseling crisis, please contact the appropriate community service (see the listing below):
For attempted suicide or immediate suicidal threat, contact Campus Safety for assistance in coordinating transportation to Holland Hospital Emergency Department. They will assist with contacting an ambulance. Please do not transport an actively suicidal student in your own vehicle.
For distressed students, or students who need on-going counseling, the student can contact Holland Hospital’s Behavioral Health at 355-3926. The student will need their insurance information when they call for an appointment.
For sexual assault or partner violence, contact Center for Women in Transition at 392-1970. This is a 24 hour crisis service and offers both medical and counseling care.
If you are uncertain about where to begin, please consult with Richard Frost, VP for Student Life or John Jobson, Associate Dean of Students.
Counseling services are oriented toward education, specialty services, crisis intervention, and short-term counseling. If specialized, intensive attention is needed, a client referral may be made to one of the many physicians or therapists in our community.
Although a family member, faculty, staff, or friend may suggest an appointment, you are encouraged to call the Counseling Center to make your own arrangements.
Groups are offered occassionally. Be sure to check the Events/Topics page of this website for upcoming groups.
