Counseling & Human Development (CHD): Daytime/weekdays: 603-646-99442 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:
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. to 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 & Security at 603-646-3333 summer term/between terms.
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 a 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.
