Getting Help

If you are in crisis or danger and need help immediately, please call 911.

During Business Hours (8AM - 5PM, Monday - Friday):
Students in need of urgent psychological assistance should call the counseling center at 512-245-2208.

There is an on-call counselor who can respond to students in crisis, as well as consult with concerned friends, family, staff, and faculty.  Examples include concerns about risk of hurting self or others, a recent traumatic event (including physical or sexual assault), or a level of distress that is impairing daily functioning.

Counselors are also available upon request to speak with students, faculty and/or staff following a traumatic event such as the death of a student, team mate, class mate, or other member of the Texas State University community.
