Kentucky State University’s Student Health Services provides quality, free-of-charge healthcare to students. In order to support the holistic development of a healthy lifestyle for students, we focus on all aspects of care—physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. We sponsor outreach projects to access students on their level; we conduct lectures and seminars to help educate the public about living a life of wellness. Services are available during the regular academic year and summer sessions.
Regular clinic hours are posted for the Betty White Health Center during the regular academic year and summer session, and services of the University’s doctor are available on a part-time basis only.

Mental Health Counselor
As a student, you may experience a range of issues that can cause barriers to learning, such as strained relationships, increased anxiety, alcohol/drug problems, feeling down, difficulty concentrating and/or lack of motivation. These mental health concerns or stressful events may lead to diminished academic performance or reduce your ability to participate in daily activities. Services are available to assist you with addressing these and other concerns you may be experiencing. In order to schedule an appointment with the mental health Counselor, walk-in appointments during regular business hours are welcomed. If you would prefer an appointment, however, please call (502) 597-6271.
On weekends and after 4:30pm on weekdays, individuals in need of care or having an emergency may contact their Dormitory Director or the KSU Campus Police & Security at (502) 597-6878. They will be able to contact the appropriate individuals to help you.
