Crisis Appointments

The Counseling Center is here to support our students who are experiencing a crisis.  

If you feel you are in immediate danger or imminent danger of killing yourself or someone else, call 911 or seek medical assistance at an emergency room.

If in the PAST TWO WEEKS you have:

  • Had thoughts of hurting or killing yourself or someone else and are considering or planning on acting on the thoughts
  • Tried to hurt or kill yourself or someone else, even if you stopped the attempt or were interrupted

Call 512-245-2208 and speak with a mental health staff member.  Additional resources are provided on our Crisis Information page.

Examples include:

  • You have thought about when, where, or how you would act on these thoughts.
  • You have created a plan or have made a recent attempt (e.g., collected pills, obtained a gun, wrote a suicide note, took out pills, held a gun but changed your mind, went to the roof to jump, or took pills, etc).


If you are seeking support because you:

  • Experienced a physical or sexual assault
  • Experienced the death of someone close to you
  • Are hearing voices or seeing things other people do not
  • Have recently been discharged from a psychiatric hospital

Call 512-245-2208 during business hours (M-F, 8-5) or outside of these hours use these crisis resources.
