During Business Hours

The Counseling Center provides crisis care for safety-related emergencies. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency during business hours, please call 303-273-3377 to request a crisis appointment. Students presenting for crisis care are asked to complete crisis paperwork to help the counselor understand their situation and determine the urgency of their need. A brief crisis appointment will be set to address immediate safety concerns, stabilization and follow up options. If a counselor is not available, students will be referred to crisis resources in the community.

Please use the flow chart below to help determine appropriate steps.
