Crisis Services

Important: If you or someone you are concerned about is in a serious and imminent life-threatening circumstance, please bypass this information and immediately call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.


The UCC offers 24/7 Crisis Intervention Services

During normal office hours, call the UCC (574-631-7336) and ask to speak to a counselor indicating that you are experiencing crisis or are involved with a student in crisis.

After office hours, when the UCC is closed, call the UCC Office and follow the voicemail instructions to reach the on-call counselor.

Suicidal intent, acute risk of violent behavior, loss of emotional control, response to a traumatic event, sexual violence, death of a loved one, and gross impairment in thinking ability are examples of crisis situations.

Crisis Services are not available when the University is closed over the Christmas Holiday.
