    Crisis Support

    During hours of operation, an appropriate medical provider or behavioral health specialist is able to provide brief safety assessments and interventions when available. Please contact the Nova Wellness Center to be connected to the appropriate provider.

    For behavioral health, if there's an urgent/immediate threat OR outside of hours of operation; students and/or anyone in a young person's life, should call 911 or Crisis Connections (206-461-3222). The Children's Crisis Outreach and Response team (CCORS) through Crisis Connections has a 24/hour response team, holidays included, that can meet the student for an assessment and fast track them to Seattle Children's if needed. For behavioral health and medical emergencies, students may go to the Country Doctor After Hours Clinic, Seattle Children's Emergency Room, or another nearby hospital/urgent care.

    During holidays and school breaks, students can contact our main clinics: Country Doctor Community Clinic and Carolyn Downs Family Medical Center for medical and/or behavioral health support.
