Outreach and Community Intervention
What is outreach?
Outreach is about increasing college student mental health awareness through prevention, awareness, education, and stigma reduction. Through outreach, EKUCC staff and Mental Health Peer Advocate students (MHPA's) are able to connect with the larger EKU community.
Outreach topics provided but not limited to:
- Stress Management
- Meditation and Relaxation Techniques
- Counseling Center Services
- Suicide Prevention (QPR)
Additional outreach topics are available upon request
If you have a request for an outreach presentation or program, please complete the following online request form:
We recommend that you make outreach requests as far in advance as possible (we recommend a minimum of 2 weeks notice). We cannot guarantee that requests made with little advanced notice will be completed, but we will try our best to accommodate your request. If your scheduled presenter should become sick or unavailable the day of the presentation, we will contact you to reschedule your presentation for another date at your convenience. Please see our Events page for outreaches and/or workshops that the Counseling Center is offering for the university community.
Invitations to interview with EKUCC staff are considered and accepted on a case-by-case basis, based on the nature of the request and in alignment with EKUCC Policies and Procedures. A minimum of 3 business days is required for a response. Business days are defined as days that the EKU Counseling Center is open and seeing students for services. Interviews with staff at the EKUCC are only given through email. EKUCC policy states that we also require to see a preview of what will be published or made public before any publication is finalized.
For any further questions please contact the EKUCC Coordinator of Community Intervention Natalie Deering at firstname.lastname@example.org.
