LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 22, 2022) – The TRACS (Triage, Referral, Assistance and Crisis Support) hub is a physical and virtual one-stop shop where students can come for a quick referral to support services or receive direct clinical support for a range of mental health needs, basic needs and crises.
The process is simple: if you are a student with a mental health or wellness question, or a staff/faculty member assisting a student, you can show up in-person (third floor, east wing of the Gatton Student Center), call 859-21TRACS (859-218-7227) or fill out this form for assistance.
This will allow students to connect with a team member — removing barriers to entry and aligning all mental health and well-being services across campus.
Here’s more details on how it works:
Paige Greene, the new Director of the TRACS Hub, talks on this episode of Behind the Blue about her first few months as director, how holidays and other non-school factors can contribute to stress, anxiety and depression, the importance of mental health resources for members of marginalized communities, and more.
