Taking care of yourself—and taking care of each other—is critical to thrive as individuals and as an institution. We encourage members of our community to take advantage of the many mental health resources UK has to offer. Whether it's attending an event where you can pet a furry friend, or scheduling an appointment with our Counseling Center, UK has many opportunities for you to prioritize your well-being.
