Counseling & Wellness Center

Emergency Services

Counselors at Chico State are available for in-person and/or phone consultation 24/7. Please call our main line at 530-898-6345 for assistance. If you are calling outside of regular business hours, please follow the recorded instructions to reach a live counselor.

If you are having a mental health crisis and are in the Chico area, you also may call Butte County Behavioral Health (also 24/7) at 1-800-334-6622 or 530-891-2810.

Crisis/Emergency Appointments

We offer crisis/emergency appointments each day to students from 9 a.m.–4 p.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 at 8a.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.
