Dartmouth Cares - Get Help

For life threatening emergencies, please call 911 for immediate help or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.


Counseling Center: Daytime/weekdays: 603-646-9442: After hours/weekends: 603-646-3333

The Counseling Center offers 24-hour crisis counseling for enrolled students or for those who are concerned about an enrolled student.

An emergency might involve:

  • Thoughts and/or plans to hurt yourself or someone else
  • Engaging in a behavior that is life threatening
  • If you have been assaulted, physically or sexually

During Regular Business Hours: While most counseling services are scheduled on an appointment basis, there may be crisis situations that require immediate or same-day intervention. The Counseling Center is open from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (summer term/term breaks: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). You can call our office at 603-646-9442 or come to the Counseling Center on the second floor of Dick's House and let the office staff know that you have an urgent concern.

After Regular Business Hours: You can access the counselor on-call by calling Dick's House Inpatient Department (IPD) at 603-646-9440 or by calling Safety & Security at 603-646-3333.

What to Expect: The on-call counselor will help you determine what care you need and how and where to get it. At times, just talking through a crisis situation with the counselor is all that is needed. The counselor on-call will determine with you if further intervention is appropriate. In some cases, the counselor on-call will help a distressed student formulate a plan, including resources for support to get through a night or weekend.
