EKU trauma & suicide prevention clinic outreach

The Eastern Kentucky University psychology department is housed in the Cammack Building. 

The Eastern Kentucky University psychology department is offering a trauma and suicide prevention clinic (TSPC) to inform the community about the variety of services offered at EKU and from the state. 

The clinic offers a variety of trauma-informed educational trainings and presentations that are designed to strengthen community responses to individuals who are experiencing trauma or suicidal ideation, such as "Suicide Prevention and Assessment" and "The Impacts of Trauma on the Developing Child."

According to Tyler McQueen, trauma & suicide prevention specialty clinic assistant coordinator, the TSPC offers trauma and suicide prevention-focused counseling services to children, adolescents and adults. The clinic is staffed by doctoral students in the clinical psychology program who are closely supervised by the clinical faculty members who are licensed psychologists.

“We offer in-person (once social distancing requirements are relaxed) and tele-health-based services, using a secure and encrypted tele-health platform. Our clinic uses a sliding scale when determining fees, as we aim to provide affordable mental health services,” McQueen said in an email to the campus community.
