Get Crisis Help Now


Marshall University Crisis Hotline – 304-696-2550.

If the situation is already a medical emergency (Injuries, substance overdose, etc), please call for an ambulance first and then contact our crisis line for follow-up care.

Should a crisis occur during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., M-F), you may come to the South Lobby of Prichard Hall (by the ramp) for assistance or call 304-696-2550.

For after-hours crises, do not come to Prichard Hall – instead call 304-696-3111 or 304-696-2550 and select the appropriate option after listening to the pre-recorded list of options.

Faculty and staff who become aware of a student’s crisis situation may walk that student to the Counseling Center for immediate assistance during business hours, or they may assist the student in calling 304-696-3111 and selecting the Crisis Counselor option from the available options. If the student is not with you, instead select the option to speak with our Front Desk or MUPD.
