The Counseling Center and the McKinley Mental Health Department collaborate with the Champaign County Mental Health Center to provide the University with emergency services for psychological matters. Psychological Emergency Services are available 24 hours a day and focuses on problems that need to be addressed immediately.
If the emergency occurs during the day, call the Counseling Center at 217-333-3704 or the McKinley Mental Health Department at 217-333-2705 to arrange the appropriate appointment or gathering of information. When contacting either department, it will be helpful to declare this is an emergency and that the student needs to be seen right away.
If the emergency occurs after business hours or the student won’t see a counselor, can’t be found, or refuses contact with others, call Psychological Emergency Services at 217-244-P911 and you will get a consultation with a mental health professional.
