The Lee University Counseling Center (LUCC) has re-opened, with staff primarily working in-office. Therapy and other mental health services will resume on the first day of classes (January 12th).
We will begin the Spring 2021 semester (first 3-4 weeks) using telemental health (and other digital means) as our standard approach for provision of therapy as well as intake, psychiatric, and other services. This and our other re-opening policies have been developed in response to guidance from relevant sources including Lee University, relevant professional organizations, state and federal, etc. In rare exceptional cases, evaluated by pre-determined standards of necessity, in-person intervention may be offered. When providing in-person therapy/services, a variety of risk mitigation strategies will be required including but not limited to social distancing and the use of masks.
Please call LUCC at (423) 614-8415 (rather than walking-in to the center) with any questions or if seeking to initiate therapy/services with us. In case of crisis, contact 911 or Crisis Response at (423) 634-8995. If you are seeking crisis-related services from LUCC, please call rather than walking-in.
LUCC intends to re-evaluate our current policies following the first 3-4 weeks of the semester, with hopes of expanding in-person services.
Due to COVID-19 changes, rather than following our typical intake procedure, please contact LUCC at (423) 614-8415 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be glad to assist you.
