Mental Health Counseling | ECTC

Mental Health Counseling

Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and Spalding University are partnering to bring free, confidential counseling to ECTC students. Through Spalding University’s Center for Behavioral Health (CBH), students can access counseling over a secure internet or phone. 

The partnership provides up to three free sessions to ECTC students. After three sessions, the cost is depended upon household income and family size. The CBH clinicians provide individualized care for students’ personalized needs. 

Dealing with the pain and stress associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, racial unrest and any other life issues can be more than individuals can handle on their own. Counseling provides the opportunity to talk with an objective professional who can help identify solutions to problems, build coping skills, or collaborate in whatever way is needed to seek optimal mental and emotional health. Students can contact the Spalding University Center for Behavioral Health directly or call 502-792-7011, or email at for more information.

ECTC students with questions for the college can contact the Chief Student Affairs Officer in RPC 100-A.
