Presenting yourself as knowledgeable about campus services can ease a student’s discomfort about seeking help. Here are some suggestions for emergency and non-emergency situations. (An emergency is defined as being a situation where the student is in imminent danger of hurting self or others.)
During CTC business hours
If the emergency occurs during CTC business hours call the Counseling and Testing Center at 316-978-3440 and let the receptionist know you need to speak to a counselor immediately OR walk over to the Center office with the student.
Provide the counselor with a description of the situation which has led to your concern.
The counselor will advise you of appropriate actions to take to get the student immediate assistance.
Outside of CTC business hours
If the emergency occurs outside of CTC business hours, call 911 or the WSU Police at 316-978-3450. COMCARE Crisis Services are also available at 660-7500.
Encourage the student to contact Counseling and Testing Center directly to schedule an initial appointment by calling 316-978-3440.
Offer to let the student call from your office or walk him/her over to make an appointment if you believe they need extra support and encouragement.
Let the student know that services are confidential and available at a very low cost.
Provide information on other appropriate campus and community resources.
