Mental Health Emergency Resources

On-Campus Crisis Resources

Regarding incidents of imminent danger, first call 911, then contact Campus Safety at 503.943.4444 so that they are aware and available to assist the police.

If you need to speak with a counselor urgently at any time, you may call the Health & Counseling office at 503.943.7134, and choose option 3 in our voicemail to be connected with the Pilot Helpline (on-call counselor).

Same day crisis counseling in-person appointments will resume in August. To request a same day appointment, please call 503.943.7134. If you are requesting a same day appointment, reception will ask you to answer some brief questions so we can better understand your needs. Same day crisis appointments are available to students who are experiencing and wanting to address active suicidal or homicidal ideation, recent oppression or discrimination based on a marginalized identity, recent death of a loved one, and to students who have experienced sexual assault or other interpersonal violence.
