Crisis Intervention

During Business Hours

If you are in an immediate and life-threatening mental health crisis, call Public Safety at 937-229-2121 if you are on campus, call 911 if you are off campus, or present to the nearest emergency room.

If you are in a non-life-threatening mental health crisis, call the Counseling Center at 937-229-3141 for crisis intervention from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. A therapist is assigned to provide crisis intervention during specific hours daily. We can generally return calls by the end of the business day.
