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 2575 or visit the Counseling Center and identify that they are in crisis. The Counseling Center is located on the second 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 Trevor Project has a range of options for LGBTQIA people in crisis and at risk of suicide to connect with a counselor including by phone, text, and instant message.

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 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 Advocate, Jennifer Gagen, to receive confidential support. Jennifer has completed both Safe Space and Trans 101 training.

 

 

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 gay, bi, or queer men (or who are otherwise men who have sex with men) and who are requesting STI Screening, HIV testing, and information about PrEP or other sexual health concerns can make an appointment to see Steven Terry, PA in Stamps.

LGBTQIA students who identify as 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 LGBTQIA patients.

 

 

SUPPORT, REFERRALS, AND GENERAL ASSISTANCE

For students who are seeking non-crisis support, please make an appointment with Dr. Aby Parsons, director of the LGBTQIA Resource Center. Aby can provide referrals and guidance on a range of LGBTQIA issues. You may also drop by the Center in room 115A of the flag building but please be advised that Aby may not be available immediately. If you require assistance in Aby's absence, the staff in the Women's Resource Center can provide a safe and supportive environment to dicuss concerns. Please note that neither office can provide counseling support.
