International Mental Health Support

Last updated on Aug 31, 2020

If you are a CCA student living internationally, or a CCA Staff or Faculty member supporting a student living internationally this page is dedicated to supporting you in finding resources internationally.

Our Mental Health Crisis Hotline 510 594 5099 is equipped to speak with CCA students all over the globe and is available 24/7, 365. If you'd like to speak to someone in your home language, please see below.

Below you will find a comprehensive list of country specific emergency numbers and mental health hotlines that align with our international student population. The list is arranged starting with the highest percentage of international students in the CCA community. If you do not see your country listed here and want to check out additional resources Suicide Stop has an extensive, worldwide list. Many of these programs also have chat and email functions so you can utilize those resources as well if that's preferable.
