If a friend is struggling and you're not sure what to do, check out the Do's And Don'ts of Crisis For Students.
If you are a faculty member or administrator with non-emergency concerns about a student and you would like to consult with a member of Psychological Services, please call our mainline at (559) 443 - 8687 and leave a message. Alternatively, you can email the department at PsychServices@SCCCD.edu. A clinician will return the message within 2 – 3 business days.
At this time, staff who have a student in serious crisis (disclosing harm to self or harm to others) should immediately call their Campus Police department or local police to evaluate the student rather than referring to Psychological Services in order to ensure the safety of the student.
If you are unsure, please review the Crisis Do’s & Don’ts for Staff.
Please note that SCCCD Psychological Services clinicians can NOT contact students who have not completed a Request for Services Form. If you would like to refer a student to Psychological Services, please have them complete this form: Request for Services.
