Crisis Intervention Services

The Student Counseling Center offers immediate assistance to students in crisis.

Walk-in Crisis Services

During normal business hours, therapists are available to assist students in immediate crisis. Students will meet briefly with a crisis evaluation therapist to determine whether the student should be seen by an intake counselor immediately or if the student can wait for the next regularly scheduled intake appointment.

After-Hours Crisis Services

The Texas Tech Crisis HelpLine (806-742-5555) is a 24-hour service to assist students experiencing a mental health or interpersonal violence crisis.  Crisis counselors are familiar with TTU and Lubbock community resources and will be able to direct the caller to appropriate resources.
