Mental Health Counseling Available to ECTC Students

Published on Sep 11, 2020

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 https://behavioralhealth.spalding.edu/ or call 502-792-7011, or email at behavioralhealth@spalding.edu for more information.

“ECTC is delighted and thankful for this partnership with Spalding University,” said ECTC Chief Student Affairs Officer, Dr. Dale Buckles. “ECTC students now have immediate access to qualified, trained mental health counselors as they cope with life’s stresses and challenges.” 

ECTC students with questions for the college can contact Dr. Dale Buckles at dale.buckles@kctcs.edu or 270-706-8431.
