The EKU Counseling Center (EKUCC) provides confidential psychotherapy and other psychological services for currently enrolled EKU students. EKUCC also provides psychoeducational events and programs to increase mental health awareness within the EKU community through prevention, education, and stigma reduction (see Outreach). It is of utmost importance to EKUCC to provide mental health services in a welcoming, comfortable, and multi-culturally sensitive environment for all in the EKU community.

The Eastern Kentucky University Counseling Center (EKUCC) offers after hours mental health support and crisis services to an EKU student or any person concerned about an EKU student. To access EKUCC After Hours Urgent Support, please call (859) 622-1303. This 24/7 mental health support service is available weekends, evenings, holidays, and during university closures. The after hours support and crisis line augments the existing full spectrum of clinical services provided at the EKU Counseling Center and extends the reach to more students, at critical times after hours when they may need the services.
