Crisis Intervention

Monday 8:15am-12:00pm 1:00pm-5:00pm

Thursday 8:15am-12:00pm 1:00pm-5:00pm
Friday 8:15am-12:00pm 1:00pm-5:00pm

 

* During summer when classes are in session, Wednesday crisis hours are 8am-Noon and 1-5pm.

Sexual & Interpersonal Misconduct

If you or someone you know has experienced sexual or interpersonal misconduct, and you are concerned about your safety, call 9-1-1 immediately

If you are on campus, you can also call Public Safety at (310) 338-2893. 

For more information about sexual and interpersonal misconduct, visit LMU CARES for reporting options, support and education.

After Hours

An urgent need for a consultation with a therapist may arise when our office is closed.

Those using the After-Hour service will receive a follow-up call the next business day from an SPS staff.
