In order to protect our campus community and beyond, the UKCC hopes to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus by modifying most services offered. Individual and couples therapy, and case management appointments will be conducted via secure Zoom or phone to students who are currently in the state of Kentucky.  If you are not in the state of Kentucky, we can talk by phone to locate other resources for you. 

Please watch your email and have phones ready to accept voicemail messages from UKCC. You may receive a phone call from blocked or unknown number. 

  • Groups are cancelled for the remainder of the spring semester and until further notice. 
  • Workshops may be conducted via Zoom.
  • The Relaxation Room is closed for the remainder of the spring semester and until further notice.
