Are you, or is someone you know, in an emergency situation or experiencing a crisis? A mental health crisis can be any situation in which a person’s behavior puts them at risk of hurting themselves or others and/or prevents them from being able to care for themselves or function effectively in the community. If you are experiencing a crisis, you may access our registration link (10am-1:30pm Monday - Friday) . If this crisis cannot wait until the next day during registration hours, you may call TCS (215-204-7276) during regular business hours and ask to speak with a counselor and indicate that it is a crisis.
If you are experiencing a crisis after business hours, the mental health crisis service may be accessed by contacting TUPD (215-204-1234) and they will transfer you. You may also visit this list of hotlines if you wish to speak with someone after business hours: https://counseling.temple.edu/hotlines
