Navigating the mental health system can be overwhelming and frustrating. This process is further complicated when providers say they use popular research-based treatments, such as mindfulness or cognitive behavior therapy, but do not have the necessary training to deliver these interventions.

At the Center for Emotional Health, patients receive the highest quality care available. Our Center Directors were trained at world-renowned clinics, and are committed to bringing state-of-the-art mental health treatment to the Bluegrass. Thus, when you seek services at CEH, you can be sure that your clinician has the expertise to address your difficulties. In addition, all of our providers are also researchers at the University of Kentucky. Not only are we up-to-date on the latest science from around the world, we are actively involved in conducting cutting-edge research that will improve the lives of people struggling with emotional difficulties. 

Since CEH is a treatment, research, and training clinic, we offer several options for patient care. First, standard care at CEH is set up like a typical doctor’s office; patients make appointments with their assigned provider and pay for these services. There is flexibility to determine the specific evidence-based intervention(s) that will be used, along with how many sessions will be provided. Additionally, patients can request a specific expertise-level for their provider (e.g., Master Clinician, PhD-level, clinical extern) via the standard care option at CEH. We also offer treatment through ongoing clinical research studies. Though this treatment may be less flexible (i.e., set content, set number of sessions), patients receive their sessions at no cost. The same therapists who provide standard care are also involved in research treatment, though there is less flexibility to choose the level of expertise. Across all of these options, patients always receive high quality, research-supported interventions.
