• Know Your Counselor!

    *Because we are often away from our desks, around campus, in classrooms, and assisting students, email is our preferred contact method. Please note that emails and social media accounts are not monitored after school hours, on weekends, or during holiday breaks.

    If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health emergency and need immediate assistance outside of school hours, please dial 911, contact Mobile Crisis at 1-888-573-1006, or visit the C3356 Comprehensive Care Center at 356 Biltmore Ave Asheville *
