We at Health Counseling and Student Wellness extend our support to members of our campus community who are impacted by the recent events highlighting racial discrimination and social injustice in our country. As physical and mental health professionals, we work to support the wellbeing of NKU students, faculty and staff. To do so, we must acknowledge the mental, physical and emotional toll of tragic recent and historical events while actively working to create a healthier society, free from injustice. We stand with and strive to uphold the core values of this University; to foster a community of belonging through equity, diversity and inclusion.
The impact of recent events, whether experienced directly or vicariously, could result in significant distress, increased feelings of anger, sadness, hurt, anxiety, changes in sleeping or eating habits, difficulty concentrating, or changes in relationships or other behavior patterns. If you are experiencing distress in response to recent events, it is important to know that your reactions are valid. Self-care strategies, such as engaging in social and community connection and taking time for yourself to “unplug,” can be an important part of coping with these responses.
We stand with you. We are here for you. If you would like to talk to a counselor for support or would like assistance in connecting with community mental health resources, you can do so by calling (859) 572-5650, Monday - Friday, 8:30am-4:30 pm. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, a counselor is available after hours by calling (859) 572-7777. This number is directed to campus police who will then transfer you to the counselor on call.

The Health Services office is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses (RNs).
