Mental Health Counseling

WKUHS is committed to serving the WKU campus community by providing counseling, psychiatric consultation, and prevention services that facilitate students' academic and life goals and enhance their personal growth and well-being.

Common Concerns:

  • Stress
  • Relationships
  • Peer Pressure
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • ADHD
  • Grief and Loss
  • Suicide

Painful feeling such as anxiety, anger, depression, low-self esteem, or tension are a normal part of being human and can affect anyone. These feelings are often temporary and can be eased by rest, relaxation, exercise, good nutrition, and support from trusted friends. At other times, stressors such as heavy work load, relationships or past family experiences are unmanageable and overwhelming. If this occurs you may want to seek professional help. We have a full-time psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who can evaluate and treat your illness. To schedule an appointment, please call (270) 745-5641.

Health Services works closely with Counseling and Testing Services to provide both medical and psychological treatment.
