Crisis Support & 24-Hour Resources

Our crisis services are available for students who are experiencing an urgent need, or for individuals who are concerned about a student’s safety and mental well-being. To talk with a CAPS clinician during business hours (M-F, 8 a.m. -5 p.m.), contact our office at 330-672-2487 or come into the CAPS office. 

For after-hours support, students can also contact 330-672-2487 (select option 3) to speak with a licensed mental health clinician from Impact Student Assistance Program. 

Kent State University also offers Step Up Speak Out, a collaborative initiative to better educate University community members on how to assist distressed or disruptive individuals.
