Emergency Numbers


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

Counseling and Human Development:  Daytime/weekdays: (603)646-9442: After hours/weekends: (603)646-3333

CHD 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. CHD is open from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (summer term/between term hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). You can call our office at
(603)646-9442 and ask to speak to the "Counselor on-call" or come to CHD on the second floor of Dick's House. Please inform our staff member at the reception desk 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 and Security at

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, for instance, the counselor on-call will help a distressed student formulate a plan, including resources for support, to get through a night or weekend.    Download document
