Urgent Mental Health Concerns

We offer urgent care services for students experiencing distress or psychological difficulties, and also for others in the community who may have concerns about a student, including a roommate, family member, Dean, faculty member or coach.  Just come directly to the McCosh Health Center between 9:30am-4pm to be seen the same day by a CPS counselor.

CPS clinicians are also available to respond to disasters or traumatic events that may affect an individual or the community.

Urgent Consultations

During an urgent consultation, a CPS counselor will talk with you to assess the situation and provide immediate support. Sometimes talking through a crisis situation with a counselor is all that is needed. A counselor can also help to establish a plan for further appropriate care for you or the person you are concerned about.

CPS does not offer urgent psychiatric services (i.e., regarding medications) after hours, but when appropriate the on-call counselor can facilitate a referral for an urgent psychiatric consultation at CPS on the next available business day.

Getting Help

Feel free to come directly to the McCosh Health Center between 9:30am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday, to be seen by a counselor on Urgent Care.

You can also reach the CPS Cares Line by calling our main number 609-258-3141 and pressing 2 to speak with the counselor on call.

If safety is of immediate concern either during or after business hours, call the Department of Public Safety at 911.
