Emergencies

The PSC does not offer after hours emergency services.  WE ALSO DO NOT OFFER CRISIS SERVICES, AND DO NOT HAVE STAFF ON CALL TO DEAL WITH CRISIS SITUATIONS.  WE ALSO ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE SAME-DAY SERVICES.  If you have an emergency, please use one of the contacts listed below.

For USC students, contact Counseling Services:  You can speak to an Advice Nurse for urgent situations at (213) 740-7711.  For life threatening emergencies, dial (213) 740-4321 if you are on campus, or 911 if you are off campus.

If you are not a USC student, you can dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
