Mental Health Emergencies

In the event of a life-threatening emergency:

  • Call 9-911 from a campus phone
  • Call (414) 229-9911 or 911 from a cell phone
  • or go to the Emergency Room

Norris Health Center is open between 8am and 4:45pm Monday through Thursday and between 9am and 4:45pm on Friday.

A Norris Health Center counselor is on-call everyday during our hours of operation. For students experiencing crisis situations or who have urgent needs that are not life threatening, brief screening sessions (up to 30 minutes) are provided to help stabilize the situation and determine what further treatment may be necessary. An appointment is not necessary but there may be a wait to be seen if the counselor is occupied with another student at the time of your arrival.

For urgent matters that arise when Norris Health Center is closed, you may contact the Milwaukee County Crisis line at 414-257-7222. This crisis line is answered twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7).
