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.
Initiating EKUCC services is still a RAPID ACCESS (no appointment needed) process: a student calls the EKU Counseling Center: 859-622-1303. They are sent a link to complete initial documentation and then will speak with one of our licensed mental health professionals via secure telehealth platform or by phone the same day, usually within an hour. If a client requires/requests a crisis meeting between scheduled appointments, they call the EKU Counseling Center: 859-622-1303 and will meet with one of our licensed professionals in person, or via secure telehealth platform or phone the same day, usually within an hour. This is also a RAPID ACCESS service (no appointment needed).
We continue to offer after-hours crisis services. To access that service, a student will need to call the EKU Counseling Center: 859-622-1303 and will be able to speak with a licensed clinician outside of regular business hours: evenings, weekends, holidays, and university closures.
