When students, faculty, or staff of Idaho State University have an urgent mental health concern for themselves or another person, they can contact our office at (208) 282-2130 or come to our center located in Graveley Hall South Room 351 and ask to speak with a counselor during our business hours. Counseling staff also coordinate and assist with follow-up to emergencies and conduct critical incident stress debriefings. Contact us for more information.

Our staff is available for consultations from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday during the regular school year. During the summer, we are open from 7:30 am to 3 pm Monday-Friday. The Counseling and Testing Service does not provide crisis services when our office is closed.
