After Hours and Emergencies
To reach a mental health clinician after business hours, on weekends or during University holidays and other closures call 859-257-8701 and select Option #1 to be connected with a clinician.
Phone numbers and links are not meant for communicating emergency situations. If you have an emergency, contact the UK Police Department by calling #UKPD or 911.
Note that in certain cases, including instances related to abuse and violence, university staff and faculty members are legally required to report information shared with them and cannot maintain complete confidentiality in those situations. However, the staff in the TRACS (Triage, Referral, Assistance, and Crisis Support) Hub, Counseling Center, and VIP (Violence Intervention and Prevention) Center can provide private and confidential resources. This means that if a client seeks support from one of these three units and discloses information in the process of receiving counseling, advocacy, or other professional services, the staff are generally not required to make a report.
All other units within Student Success are staffed by mandated reporters.
