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 or faculty or staff member
- Sexual assaults
- Alcohol or other drug overdoses
- Car accidents
- Hate crimes
- Acts of violence
- National or local tragedies
Responding quickly and 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 what services would best benefit your situation.
