Emergency Services

Updated 9/17/15

We provide crisis assessment and intervention for people experiencing immediate concerns. During evenings weekends, holidays, and vacation breaks when the Counseling Center is not open, the Butte County Crisis Line is available 24 hours a day at 1–800–334–6622.

Crisis/Emergency Appointments

We offer crisis/emergency appointments each day to students from 8a.m. – 5p.m. These times are reserved for students who are at risk of harming themselves or others or who have recently experienced a significant trauma.  The session length varies. 

Same-Day Appointments

We offer a limited number of same-day appointments for students to see a counselor on urgent matters that do not constitute a crisis/emergency. Students should call between 8-9a.m. as these appointments are filled on a first come, first served basis.  The session length is 30-minutes.

IF THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING SITUATION OR ONE THAT COULD RESULT IN HARM TO YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE, CALL 911.
