Urgent Help After Hours


The Center for Psychological Counseling Services provides individual and group counseling options for students dealing with difficulties or challenges in their academic and personal lives. The administrative coordinator, Ms Michal Eyal, can normally be reached Sunday to Thursday from 9:00-15:00 at 09-9602872 or by e-mail: emichal@idc.ac.il

Sometimes students contact us in situations that require an immediate response, for example:



  • An urgent, crisis situation
  • Intrusive thoughts about self-harm, suicide, or hurting someone else
  • Unbearable stress or anxiety
  • Worries about someone experiencing an emotional crisis


In urgent situations of emotional distress, if you are unable to reach the Center (for example - after hours or during vacation periods), please consider the following course of action:


Make sure to contact a family member, friend, or someone else with whom you can share what you are going through. Do not stay by yourself! In addition, immediately contact one of the following options for emergency care:



  • ERAN - Emotional First Aid by Telephone & Internet
  • Family doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist
  • Emergency services of a hospital or psychiatric facility, for example:
    - Emergency services, Shalvata Hospital, Hod Hasharon
