Phone Consultation – x3230 (641/269-3230 off campus)
If you have a question or concern about your health, a life problem, or your mental health, or about those of another student, we encourage you to call for a brief phone consultation with a nurse or counselor. The person with whom you speak will be able to provide resources, ideas, and/or referrals for appropriate services. You may be recommended to make an appointment at Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACS). If your situation is urgent, you will be encouraged to come directly to SHACS.
While you are welcome to call for consultation at any time during business hours, we also have tried to make our staff as accessible as possible by designating the hour from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, specifically for counseling consultation.
If a student needs emergency health or mental health care at any time, call Campus Safety and Security at x4600 (641/269-4600 off campus) or call 911.
In urgent but non-life-threatening situations, call SHACS (business hours, x3230, 641/269-3230 off campus) or Campus Safety and Security (evenings, weekends, and holidays, x4600, 641/269-4600 off campus).
