Crisis Services

Crisis services are available to all UW Oshkosh students during regular business hours at the Counseling Center. If you are feeling distressed and in need of crisis services, please contact the Counseling Center at 920-424-2061 and inform reception you need an emergency appointment. You will be asked triage questions to best meet your needs.

You can expect that we will try to meet with you as soon as we can to help ensure your safety, provide you with concrete steps to reduce your feelings of crisis, and discuss with you options for moving forward.

If there is a concern about safety, we will discuss with you the need to communicate with other individuals to provide the appropriate support to secure your safety or the safety of others.  We generally will not release protected health information without your consent. The exceptions to this confidentiality and privacy practice arise when there are imminent or foreseeable concerns about your safety or the safety others including risk of death or suspected abuse. An additional exception to our ability to ensure confidentiality may include court-ordered subpoena. You will have the opportunity to review our Informed Consent in full as well as discuss any questions with your counselor.
