If you’re having a mental health emergency/psychological crisis…

During regular office hours, please come directly to the Counseling Center.

After regular business hours, contact Public Safety at ext. 3333 (from a campus phone) or 508-286-3333 (from a cell phone/off-campus) and ask to be connected to the Area Coordinator on-call.

Off campus?  Call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room (Sturdy Memorial Hospital is the nearest hospital to campus).

If you’re a friend, parent, staff or faculty member, RA, preceptor, etc…

If you have concerns about a current Wheaton student, please call the Counseling Center during regular business hours and ask to speak with the Counselor-on-Duty.  The Counselor-on-Duty will listen to your concerns and advise you accordingly.  Because state law and ethical practice require counseling staff to keep a student’s identity private, please remember that staff may neither confirm nor deny knowledge of the student in question.  However, please be assured that the Counseling Center staff will take your concerns very seriously.  Upon your report to the Counselor-On-Duty, there may be a number of courses of action taken, including directly contacting the student if they are known to the Counseling Center; and/or advising you to contact another office on campus (such as the Dean of Students Office, Residential LifeAcademic Advising, and/or Public Safety).
