If you are in distress or crisis and need to speak to a clinician before your next scheduled appointment, during the day, call the CAPS office and ask for an appointment or to speak with a clinician. Nights, weekends, and holidays, you may call the CAPS help line (239) 745-3277 and you will be connected to a clinician. If you are imminent danger to yourself or others, call 911 if you are off campus and 590-1900 if you are on campus, or you may go to the emergency room at the nearest hospital. You may also contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273- TALK (8255).
