Crisis Support

For a mental health crisis or emergencies, students and families are encouraged to contact their current mental health provider first.  This allows the mental health provider, who knows the student best, to provide support and direction.

If your student does not have a mental health provider, and they are experiencing a non-life threatening mental health crisis, you are encouraged to contact the student’s guardians/parents and the Psychiatric Intake Response Center (PIRC) at CCHMC 513.636.4124.  The PIRC staff will help you and the student’s guardians/parents decide the most effective level of intervention for your student’s mental health crisis – which may include an urgent psychiatric assessment in the PIRC Bridge Clinic.

911 should be called if the student is experiencing a medical emergency or a life-threatening mental health crisis. This will help limit the spread of the coronavirus in our community and allow our emergency departments to care for patients with the most critical needs first.

  • 72% of students referred for mental health services were connected to care
  • 22 average hours in treatment services per student (therapy, medication management, and case management/CPST)
  • Prevention services are not billable for agencies but are offered as part of the partnership because of their commitment to helping reduce more serious incidents and loss of instruction time.
