Elizabethtown Community and Technical College has entered into an agreement with Spalding University to help with the mental health of students.
Chief Student Affairs Officer Dale Buckles says that Spalding University reached out to the college, asking ECTC to partner with their doctoral program in psychological counseling. ECTC accepted, and Spaulding’s students will be used as an online counseling service for Elizabethtown students. Buckles says this is necessary, due to the increase in mental health issues among college students over the last five to ten years.
The program will allow for nearly immediate service, and will all be done via telehealth, meaning students will not have to make the drive to Louisville. The service is available now, and more information can be found on the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College website.
