If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, you may call Broene at 616-526-6123 during our office hours, let the receptionist know that you are in crisis, and request an appointment for as soon as possible. You may also come during our Crisis Care hour, which is every weekday between 1:30pm and 2:30pm, when school is in session. Students who come for Crisis Hour are asked to fill out a brief form that helps the counselor determine the urgency of their need. You will either be seen immediately or the counselor will help you to schedule an appointment within the next few days.
