Emergency Procedures

Life-Threatening Medical Emergencies
If the Student Health Center is closed, call 911 or use a blue light emergency phone. You may also choose to go to a local hospital emergency room, but you will be responsible for payment for your visit there.

Counseling or Mental Health Emergencies

  • For counseling emergencies during office hours, please come to the Counseling Center.  Walk-in Appointments are available from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays except 11:00 am – 4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays or call 919-515-2423 for more information.
  • If the Counseling Center is closed, call 919-515-3000 and ask to speak to the counselor on call. The counselor on call will call you back. Emergency counseling service is available continuously, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
    The Counseling Center does not have access to an after-hours psychiatrist. Students who are in need of after-hours or weekend consultations by a psychiatrist should contact a local Urgent Care or Emergency room for a physical exam or evaluation.

You may bring a friend with you, if you wish. Or, you can contact The Solace Center at 919-828-3067.

We will ask if you wish to press criminal charges. We will not try to persuade you in your decision, but we will discuss the available options. If you wish to press charges, Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) Center at The Solace Center must collect evidence within 120 hours. Survivors age 16 and older and have no injuries that require medical attention are eligible for services..  In order to preserve evidence, do not change your clothes, shower, bathe, douche, or brush your teeth. Save the clothing you wore during the assault in a paper bag or pillowcase. Do not disturb the location where the assault occurred.

Student Health Services will perform STI (sexually transmitted infection) tests and treatment for exposure at no cost. If you are concerned about pregnancy, emergency contraception plan B is available at the Student Health Pharmacy.  Make an appointment with the NC State’s Women’s Center by calling 919-515-2012.

We will review available campus resources with you, including the Counseling Center. If you would like to see a counselor, we will help you make an appointment.

We want to empower you in the wake of this event.
