Mental Health Care

If you have a mental health emergency, such as having thoughts of suicide, please seek assistance immediately.

Monday - Friday (8am-5pm) please call or visit the Wellness Center immediately.

Note: Extended hours are offered on Monday & Wednesday (until 7pm)

After business hours, call DPS (717) 245-1111 to access the college's on-call team of counseling professionals. A member from the team will assess the situation and determine next steps. This route is preferred over going directly to the hospital, so the on-call team is able to minimize unnecessary trips to the hospital (if safety can be established through other means); this way, if the student does need to go to the hospital, the on-call team can serve as an advocate at the hospital.

Carlisle Regional Medical Center Crisis Team

While it is preferable that students utilize the emergency resources provided by the college, students may also utilize the resources at the Carlisle Regional Medical Center. There is a crisis team at the hospital provided by the Holy Spirit Health Care System trained to assess safety and will assist students in need of emergency mental health care.

Sexual Assault

Emergency resources for medical or mental health care are available for students who have been victims of a sexual assault. Access to these services can occur during business hours by contacting the Wellness Center or the YWCA. Access to services after hours can be initiated by contacting DPS or the YWCA.
