Crisis Services

During office hours, CCS staff are available to assist with mental health emergencies or crisis situations. You are encouraged to come to CCS for an initial consultation or call 815-753-1206.

After office hours and on the weekends, a CCS on-call counselor is available to provide support to NIU students experiencing mental health emergencies or crisis situations. Faculty, staff, family, or friends can also call about emergency mental health concerns regarding NIU students. Please call NIU Public Safety at 815-753-1212 and ask to speak with the on-call counselor. You will be asked for your name and phone number. The CCS on-call counselor will be contacted by Public Safety and then call you back.
