Emergency Help

Many people struggle with mental health concerns at some point.

You aren’t crazy. You aren’t a burden. You deserve help.

If you feel you're in a mental health crisis, a WSU counselor is available for emergency appointments on Monday-Friday from 12pm-3:30pm.

Please come directly to Counseling Services in IWC 222 and inform the front desk you need to see a counselor as soon as possible. We will do our best to see you right away.

If you need an immediate response outside of these hours, please contact one of the emergency resources below.
