Students in Crisis - What to Do After Hours
Counseling services is available to you even when our offices are closed (including after hours, weekends and official UTSA holidays). Counselors are committed to getting you to brighter days.
Call. Chat. Anytime. Anywhere. My SSP connects students with free, confidential mental health and wellbeing support conveniently available 24/7 via the My SSP app, telephone, and web.
Instructions: Make sure to put "UTSA" as your school. Fill out the information asked and then choose the method you are comfortable with, whether that's text chat or a voice call.
Crisis assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the UTSA Crisis Helpline.
Call 210-458-4140 and select option 3. All information given through the Crisis Helpline is confidential and only between the student and the counselor. The Wellness 360 Counseling team will follow-up with the student during the next business day morning.
