Same-Day Crisis Services
We recognize that crises can happen at any time and we are here to help.
Monday - Friday from 9am to 4pm, please call (440-775-8470) or come into CAPS for a same-day crisis appointment. When possible, students are encouraged to call ahead.
Our same-day crisis services are designed to assist students who are confronting life-threatening circumstances, current or recent traumatic crises, and/or serious emotional distress. During a same-day crisis assessment, a counselor will briefly meet with you to discuss your situation and work with you to stabilize the situation.
Examples of crisis issues include:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Thoughts about harming another person
- Recent assault or abuse
- Concern about your own safety or the safety of another
- Strange experiences, such as hearing voices or seeing things that no one else hears or sees
- Coping with serious illness, death, or dying
- Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event
The above are just some examples. There may be other situations that you may experience as placing you in a crisis.
By seeking crisis services, you understand that a crisis is a situation in which not being seen immediately could lead to serious consequences or seriously aggravate a person’s health or well-being. Seeking these services indicates that you believe that your situation is a crisis that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment.
Should you need immediate assistance for a mental health emergency, please go to an emergency room, call 911, or use one of the following after-hours crisis resources:
