CRISIS

If this is a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or, if on campus, call the Georgia Tech Campus Police at 404-894-2500.

Students experiencing a crisis that requires immediate attention may speak with the Counselor On-Call at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Between 8am and 5pm Monday-Friday, students should call 404-894-3498 or visit the Center for Assessment, Referral and Education (CARE) and identify that they are in crisis. CARE is located on the first floor of Smithgall Student Services (the Flag Building) at 353 Ferst Dr. NW.

After hours, please call 404-894-2204 and ask to speak to the after-hours counselor. You may also call the Georgia Tech police at 404-894-2500.

 

Students may also opt to access off-campus crisis services:

The Georgia Crisis & Access Line is staffed with professional social workers and counselors 24 hours per day, every day to assist those with urgent and emergency needs.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Elsewhere on the Counseling Center's website, you can find more specific information for family and friends of Georgia Tech students, and for Georgia Tech faculty and staff.

 

SEXUAL VIOLENCE

If you have experienced sexual violence of any kind and need to speak with someone, please call the VOICE Advocates, Jennifer Gagen and Amanda Planchard, to receive confidential support. 

 

 

STI SCREENING AND SEXUAL HEALTH 

If you are concerned that you may have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or other sexual health concern, please make an appointment to see a healthcare professional at Stamps Health Services or an off-campus provider.

Students who identify as cisgender women as well as students who were assigned female at birth (including trans men or transmasculine individuals) can make an appointment with Women's Health for pap smears/lower exams, STI and HIV screening, and other sexual health concerns. Staff in Women's Health are trained to assist trans, intersex, and gender variant students with any special concerns or considerations you may have.

For students wishing to seek services off campus, Feminist Women's Health Center can provide services on a sliding scale to patients.

 

SUPPORT, REFERRALS, AND GENERAL ASSISTANCE

For students who are seeking non-crisis support, please make an appointment with Melanie DeMaeyer (melanie.demaeyer@studentlife.gatech.edu) or Dani Lechner (danielle.lechner@studentlife.gatech.edu). Melanie and Dani can provide referrals and guidance on a range of issues impacting women at Georgia Tech. You may also drop by the Center in room 131 of the Flag building but please be advised that staff may not be available immediately. If you require assistance in their absence, the staff in the LGBTQIA Resource Center can provide a safe and supportive environment to dicuss concerns. Please note that neither office can provide counseling support.
