Emergency and Crisis Services

All UVA students are eligible for emergency assessments and/or consultation

Emergencies: (434) 243-5150 or 911

If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or someone else, or you feel that you are in a crisis and your efforts to manage it are not successful, call CAPS at 434-243-5150.  If you are in immediate danger of harming yourself or others or are having a medical emergency dial 911. 

Crisis and emergency consultation services are available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.

During business hours (M-F, 8am-5pm) students can call or walk-in to CAPS and speak to the on-call clinician. 

After business hours, students should call 434-243-5150 to connect with our afterhours service, Fonemed.  A registered nurse will assess your mental health concerns and direct you to the most appropriate care.

Concerns Regarding a Student (other than the caller):

If you are concerned about a student, you can call 434-243-5150 24 hours/day, 7 days/week and ask to speak with a clinician.  Consultation regarding students is available to UVA students, faculty, administrators, staff, parents and other concerned community members.
