Crisis Services

Student Counseling Service clinicians are typically available to students who are in crisis* Monday through Friday. Either call us at 847-578-8723 to arrange a crisis appointment or walk over to our office. If we should happen to have the “in- session” sign up, please tell the patient services representative upstairs that you need to be seen by Student Counseling Service.

*Please note that anyone currently experiencing intent and plan to engage in suicidal or homicidal action should immediately contact 911 or go to the closest hospital emergency room.

After-Hours Crisis Services

After-hours, weekends, holidays and any day when the Student Counseling Service is not open students are encouraged to take advantage of one of the following crisis* service options:

  1. Rosalind Franklin University’s Department of Campus Security at 847-578-3288 (manned 24 hours a day). Security can be reached by dialing 3288 from any campus phone.
  2. National Crisis Hotline at 800-748-2433 or 888-SUICIDE or 800-SUICIDE; For Spanish speaking individuals 877-784-2432 or 877-SUICIDA

*Please note that anyone currently experiencing intent and plan to engage in suicidal or homicidal action should immediately contact 911 or go to the closest hospital emergency room.

Immediate Crisis Intervention

Immediate crisis intervention is needed if you think a student is currently in a life-threatening situation or placing others in a life-threatening situation; for example, a student directly threatening suicidal or homicidal action. Call 911 in these situations. Report your concern, the student’s name (if known), and where the student can be found.

Campus-Wide Crises

Student Counseling Service clinicians are also available for campus-wide crises. Should there be a difficult situation that involves more than one student or system, there are a variety of ways Student Counseling Service may be of assistance.
