Outreach Education

Our team is available to provide information to students in a classroom setting regarding physical and mental health services as well as information regarding enrolling students without insurance into the Kentucky Medicaid program. The team can also provide handouts regarding service information and connections for the Kentucky Medicaid Program at the request of the student.

Our mental health counselors have special expertise in the realm of emotional/psychological issues, human relationships and substance abuse. This expertise is available and shared with the total university community by request through consultations, in-service training, educational programming, and class presentations on personal, social, and psychological topics.
