Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS)

How to Support a Student

Sometimes, we want to help a friend, family member, or student who we know is struggling, but it can be difficult to know how. Here are some resources to help you help them. 

If a student needs immediate support: 

  • Counseling and Wellness Services is open Monday–Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Between these hours, please accompany the student to our offices so we can best serve them. 
  • If a student is struggling or in crisis after hours, help them: 
    • Call 911 or Public Safety at 937-775-2111 if it is a life-threatening emergency 
    • Call Raider Cares, Wright State’s 24/7 crisis line, at 937-775-4567 
    • Call or text 988, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 
    • Text “4hope” to the Crisis Text Line at 741741
