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

Counseling & 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 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, 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
