Students may face an urgent concern or crisis that feels too overwhelming to wait for a scheduled appointment. SPS has an "on-call" therapist for immediate in-person intervention. The "on-call" therapist is first-come, first-serve and available during the academic year as follows:
Mondays: 8:15am-11:30am, 1:00pm-4:30pm
Tuesdays: 8:15am-11:30am, 1:00pm-4:30pm
Wednesdays: 8:15am-11:30am, 1:00pm-6:30pm
Thursdays: 8:15am-11:30am, 1:00pm-4:30pm
Fridays: 8:15am-11:30am, 1:00pm-4:30pm
An urgent need for a consultation with a therapist may arise when our office is closed. In these instances, students may contact the SPS main line at (310) 338-2868 and follow the prompts to speak to our After-Hour therapist. Those using the After-Hour service will receive a follow-up call the next business day as a check-in.
In the event of an emergency occurring on-campus, students should call Public Safety at (310) 338-2893.
For off-campus emergencies, students should call 911.
