Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT)

We’re Here When You Need Us

The Counseling Center offers immediate assistance to students in crisis. Seek the help, information and support you need.

A critical incident is “an event that overwhelms a person's usual coping mechanisms” (Mitchell, 1999).

Examples of critical incidents on a college campus include:

  • Death of a student, faculty or staff member
  • Sexual assaults
  • Alcohol or other drug overdoses
  • Suicides
  • Car accidents
  • Hate crimes
  • Acts of violence
  • National or local tragedies

Responding quickly in an appropriate manner can make the difference between healing and long-term psychological distress.

Our staff will consult with you to assess your needs and determine the services that best benefit your situation.
