Crisis Emergent Services
Due to COVID-19 related changes in services, CAPS is not currently offering in-person crisis services. We offer 24/7 phone crisis access to students who are in need of immediate support through telephone consultations or after hours crisis support. These services are acessible by 513-556-0648 and selecting the appropriate options.
If you want to discuss your concerns about a student with a staff member of CAPS , call our main line 513-556-0648 and request to schedule a consultation. We will listen to your concerns and provide specific guidance and advice tailored to the situation. We may suggest such approaches as:
- talking with the student and how to do so
- providing the student with some academic counseling or options
- creating an agreement about behavioral expectations
- referring the student to CAPS or other departments at UC
- contacting the Dean of Students Office to describe your concern.
Sometimes we provide a series of consultations about a student. You can keep in touch with us about a student as you address concerns.
