Crisis Intervention

IMPORTANT! If You Are in Immediate Crisis...
Do NOT attempt to contact us via email or any form located on this web site. Instead, call the Creighton University Public Safety at (402) 280-2911 to speak with an on-call counselor, or call the local police at 911. You may call the Counseling Center during regular business hours (Monday thru Thursday; 8:00 a.m. 6:30 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. 4:30 p.m. during the academic year)

Crisis intervention is a service offered to students who are in serious, immediate emotional distress. Psychologists are on call 24 hours a day to handle emergencies such as suicide attempts, rape or attempted rape, physical assaults, and other types of crises. If you or a friend is in a psychological crisis, visit or call Counseling Services during regular business hours at (402) 280-2735 and tell the support staff you have an emergency. If you need immediate assistance after hours during the week or on weekends, call Public Safety at (402) 280-2911 and ask them to page the on-call psychologist, who will call you back.
