The Counseling Center is the primary mental health service for the campus, and our staff are on call 24 hours a day during the academic year to respond to psychological emergencies. We work in close collaboration with the Etter Health Center, Campus Police, Dean of Students, and other offices in emergency situations.
Suicide threat or attempts;
Rape, sexual assault, or other trauma;
Severely disorganized, psychotic, or out of control behavior
In general, if a student's immediate safety is at risk then it is an emergency. If you have doubts as to whether a situation truly is an emergency, please call and discuss it with us. We might decide it is serious enough to warrant immediate intervention or we might set up a short-term follow-up plan for other urgent problems.
In the event of an emergency during the academic year, a student will be seen by a member of the senior staff as soon as possible. During regular working hours (8:30am-5:00pm) a student can come directly to the University Counseling Center in the Wellness Center, Naugle Hall, Lower Level, or call the office at 717-477-1481.
Emergency service is also available outside of business hours, at night, and on weekends by calling the Campus Police at 717-477-1444. They will contact the counselor on call for the day. If the counselor determines that the student should be evaluated immediately, we will make arrangements to see the student at Etter Health Center or pursue crisis intervention services through community mental health resources.
