BGSU Crisis Response Team

BGSU Crisis Response Team is designed to provide BGSU students timely crisis services after Counseling Center business hours such as assessing for risk and getting students connected to the best resources for them.  In collaboration with BGSU Campus Police, Office of the Dean of Students, and the College of Health & Human Services the BGSU crisis response team exists due to the continued commitment to reduce barriers to meet the mental health needs of our BGSU students.
