EMERGENCY CARE

If you are on-campus and have a physical or mental health emergency that cannot wait until our office reopens, contact DPS (717) 245-1111 and an officer will assist you with accessing care. If you are off-campus and experiencing an emergency, please call 911.

Any student who needs urgent health advice for a non-emergency during the time we are closed that cannot wait until we reopen should call our after-hours phone triage service toll-free at (877) 229-4183.  Please Note:  The Wellness Center will receive a report of your call as your healthcare provider on the next business day. Wellness Center appointments cannot be canceled utilizing this service.

Any student who needs urgent mental health care has 24/7 access to Telus Student Support Program (formerly MySSP). Students can access My SSP by downloading the app or visiting https://myssp.app/ca/home

 

CRISIS WALK IN HOURS (FOR URGENT AND EMERGENT NEEDS)

Monday - Friday
11 a.m. - noon
2 p.m. - 3 p.m.
(No appointment needed)

Our same-day crisis services are designed to assist students who are confronting life-threatening circumstances, current or recent traumatic crises, and serious mental illness.  A counselor is available to meet with students in crisis when not being seen immediately could lead to serious consequences or seriously aggravate their existing condition. The reason it is limited to these circumstances is that another student’s counseling visit may need to be interrupted to provide you with crisis services.  Students can also utilize the Telus Student Support Program (formerly My SSP) 24/7 by downloading the app or visiting https://myssp.app/ca/home

 

*Please contact the Wellness Center at 717-245-1663 during normal business hours for same-day assistance that is not an emergency.
