Urgent Services

Our urgent/crisis services are available for those students who are in crisis or have an urgent need to be seen by our counselor on duty. Counselor on Duty is available:

  • Monday-Friday: 9am-5pm

To see our Counselor on Duty for urgent/crisis needs, please call our Front Desk at 734-764-8312.  Staff will provide next steps which will include completing intake or basic information forms.  At that point, you'll be able to talk (tele-counseling) with a counselor as soon as possible.

For urgent/crisis needs after hours, please call CAPS After Hours.

Examples of reasons to see the "Counselor on Duty" include:

  • If you are not feeling safe
  • If someone close to you has died recently
  • If you have a difficult decision to make in the next 2-3 days
  • If you have been sexually assaulted within the past 72 hours
  • If you have been experiencing a lot of stress for a long time and feel like you really must speak with someone today
