Currently enrolled CU students may utilize the professional services offered by Counseling Services. Individuals are encouraged to make appointments for themselves if possible.
In non-emergency situations, an initial appointment is usually scheduled within one week. At the first visit, information and consent forms will be filled out prior to the session. During the first appointment, the counselor will begin to assess the individual's needs and determine the most effective ways to help. Options may include counseling or a referral to a community resource.
In crisis situations, however, immediate services will be provided. Try to remain calm. If a student or any person poses a direct threat to themselves or others, immediately call 911.
If a student is in distress, is disruptive or displays bizarre or irrational behavior but does not pose an immediate threat to themselves or others, try to have someone stay with the student while calling Counseling Services at (580) 581-6725 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm to request emergency consultation, evaluation, treatment and/or referral.
