“The CWC’s mission is to foster human development in all of its diversity through compassion, empowerment, advocacy, hope, and heart. The CWC embraces differences and helps nurture a healthy and healing campus environment for all.”
- Services include short-term counseling, group, and couples’ therapy as well as consultation, crisis services, outreach, referrals, self-care, resources for specific populations, and more.
- What to do in a crisis or emergency situation?
- If there is an immediate threat to a student’s physical safety, or a threat to another person’s physical safety, students are strongly encouraged to contact 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
URGENT SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE 24/7 TO STUDENTS WHO NEED IMMEDIATE ATTENTION
- If a student has an urgent mental health need during business hours, CWC counselors are available between the hours of 9am and 4pm, Monday through Friday at Radio Road or the 4th floor of Peabody Hall.
Options for Seeking Consultation
- Call us at 352-392-1575 and ask to speak with an on-call provider. A counselor will return your call within the same business day.
- Walk in at either of our two locations (3190 Radio Road or the 4th floor of Peabody Hall) to speak with an on-call provider. This would involve a brief 10-30 minute consultation focused on managing the immediate situation and getting the student connected to appropriate resources (e.g., Dean of Students office; ongoing therapy). Students will be seen on a first come first served basis, so there may be a wait.
- If a student has an urgent mental health need after business hours, phone consultation with a counselor is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us at 352-392-1575 or the Alachua County Crisis Center at 352-264-6789.
