Students are sometimes not sure if their concerns are appropriate for a crisis appointment.  Examples of situations where students should come to CAPS for a same-day consultation include:

  • Suicidal thoughts -- considering hurting yourself in some way
  • Ideas about harming someone else
  • If you have been the victim of sexual assault, violence, crime or other traumatic experience
  • If you have been unable to take care of yourself, such not sleeping or eating for several days (not due to physical illness)
