Crisis Contacts

Where to go, who to call if you're in crisis:


At Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) students can speak with licensed mental health professionals about things like:

  • anxiety and depression
  • eating and body image
  • alcohol and drug concerns
  • family, friend, roommate, and relationship problems
  • sexual assault and relationship violence
  • crises and trauma
  • psychiatric medication
  • And anything else you need to talk about.

All currently enrolled students are eligible to be seen at CAPS. They have walk-in hours Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm at two locations:

  • South side of campus at Campus Health - 1224 E. Lowell St., phone: 520-621-3334*
  • North side of campus on the second floor of the new North Rec by the Honors Village - 1051 E. Mabel St., phone: 520-626-3100*
  • After hours callers in crisis may speak with a licensed counselor by pressing 1

You may also refer a student to CAPS if you become aware of a student struggling with mental health issues. If you refer a student to CAPS, then please also file a Public Care Report with the Dean of Students.
