Have you or someone you know been a victim of violence?
A spring 2004 survey of 1,000 female UK students found that 36% had been victims of stalking, physical or sexual assault. If you are a student who has experienced violence while at UK or elsewhere, please know that the University of Kentucky Counseling Center: Consultation and Psychological Services is a safe and supportive place to talk about your life experiences. If you would prefer to speak with one of our female staff, please let our receptionist know when you call to make an appointment. We also provide free phone consultation if you are concerned about someone who has been a victim of violence, or who is fearful because they are being stalked or harassed. Our services are available Monday through Friday, 8:00AM - 5:00PM. We will be working closely with the Violence Intervention and Prevention Center, which supports UK students, staff, and faculty impacted by power-based personal violenceparticularly in the area of safety concerns. Another important resource in the community is the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center (BRCC), which operates a crisis line - (859) 253-2511 or 800-656-HOPE available 24/7/365. BRCC also provides hospital accompaniment for assault survivors, legal advocacy, and emergency counseling free of charge to anyone in the community.
