Emergency Consultation:
In the Event of an Emergency

During Business / Office Hours

If an emergency arises for which you need to speak with a counselor or if you are concerned about someone and would like to consult with a counselor, please call CSDC at (808) 956-7927 and ask to speak to the crisis counselor.

  • There will be counselors-on-duty from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Mondays through Fridays (except holidays).
  • Crisis Intervention ("walk-in") services are available during regular working hours by the on-call counselor for students needing immediate assistance. If you would prefer to talk to a counselor in person, you are welcome to walk into the Center and ask to speak to the crisis counselor.

After-Hours (On-campus Residents of UH Mānoa)

If you are living on-campus and need to reach a counselor after 4:30 p.m., there are counselors (i.e., Counselors-In-Residence or "CIRs") who are available for crises and emergencies after hours.

  • In the event of an emergency, residents of UH Mānoa student housing may contact a Counselor-in-Residence (CIR). CIRs can be reached by contacting most housing staff members, including your Resident Assistant (RA), the RA on-call, or a Resident Director (RD).
  • These times are from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. on weekdays, and 24 hours on weekends and holidays.
  • CIRs typically respond within 15 minutes, and arrive on-site to meet with students.

After-Hours (Off-campus Residents)

CSDC does not provide after-hours on-call services for off-campus residents. If you need to talk to someone on an emergency basis after 4:30 p.m. or during weekends and holidays, you may choose to call the Crisis Line of Hawaiʻi at (808) 832-3100.

  • Hawai'i CARES handles all types of mental health crisis questions 24 hours a day / 7 days a week and can respond appropriately to questions of suicide, dangerousness, and other mental health crisis by calling (808) 832-3100.
  • For a referral to other community resources, you may choose to call (808) ASK-2000 (808-275-2000).
  • In a life-threatening situation, you may choose to call HPD at 911 or go to a hospital emergency room.
