     Crisis Services

    • Available to all enrolled Lee University students regardless of their status at the Counseling Center.
    • We define crisis as:  Experiencing thoughts of harming self or others with immediate concern of acting on these thoughts.
    • If you feel you are in crisis based upon the above definition at any point in time, please consider coming to LUCC to meet with one of our staff members.
    • Our preference is for students to come during our walk-in hours (see below for walk-in days/times); however if you are not available during our walk-in hours, please contact LUCC by phone or come to our building during our open office hours so we can assist you    
    • Crisis Walk-In hours are as follows: 
      • Monday:  2:00-3:00pm
      • Tuesday:  1:00-2:30pm
      • Thursday:  8:30-10:00am
      • Friday:  10:00-11:30am     
    • Please note that a crisis appointment will focus on immediate stabilization and will not serve as an intake appointment for ongoing services.

    If you are experiencing a crisis outside of LUCC open hours, contact your nearest emergency room, 911, or Crisis Response Team at (423) 634-8995.
