When mental health problems aren’t properly addressed, they can lead to substance misuse, self-harm or suicide. If you’re worried about yourself or a friend, trust that instinct and take action now.
The Counseling Center is available 24/7 if you’re in crisis. During business hours, call 404-413-1640 and let our support team know that you’d like to speak with someone urgently. You can also reach a crisis counselor after business hours by calling 404-413-1640. Call this line if you feel that you’re in crisis, are having suicidal feelings, or if you’re in danger of doing harm to yourself or others.
QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) is a ninety-minute course that GSU offers in-person. This course teaches the signs of mental health distress, how to ask someone if they are feeling suicidal, how to talk to them about getting help, and how to assist the student with accessing that help through counseling services.

Kognito At-Risk Mental Health is an online course that takes 30- 45 minutes to complete and can be done in multiple sittings, as your progress will be saved. It is designed to help our community learn to notice signs of distress, use techniques to discuss our concerns, and, if necessary, refer students to appropriate resources. In order to build solid skills, the training module gives faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to practice these challenging conversations at their own pace through role-play with virtual students.
All enrolled students have access to both Georgia State Counseling Center services and the services offered by the University System of Georgia.
