Behavioral & Mental Health Care
At Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital we understand that good health is more than just one’s physical health. That’s why our behavioral and mental health services have been supporting the emotional, spiritual and social well-being of our community since 1985.
Our team of experienced and compassionate psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, nurses and support staff work with our adult and senior patients through a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment. With our 24-hour services, rest easy knowing you or your loved one will receive high quality care close to home.
Emotional, Spiritual, Physical and Social Wellness
Wellness for the whole person - emotional, social, spiritual and physical - is the goal of our team. Experienced and compassionate psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, nurses and support staff collaborate to ensure the best possible care for every patient. We offer inpatient care in two specialized care units, Adult and Senior. These programs, along with support groups and educational programs, work together to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families as well as the community and region.
Assessment and Admissions: 24/7
The admissions office operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to assist during times of crisis. During the assessment process, our mental health professionals gather information on the individual’s current issues including their psychological and medical history. If a patient doesn’t have their own psychiatrist, the staff will contact a psychiatrist for them.
The first step for the patient in securing care for themselves or a loved one is a call to the 24/7 Intake and Assessment line at 606-678-3440 for an immediate assessment or to schedule an appointment. Following the free confidential assessment, our staff and a psychiatrist will discuss appropriate care based on your or your loved one’s needs. These options may include inpatient hospitalization or referral to an outpatient therapist or physician.
Issues generally explored during the assessment process include:
- Anxiety or other mood disorders
- Sexual, physical or emotional abuse
- Family or work related problems
- Eating disorders
- Cognitive impairments
- Behavioral problems
Our behavioral unit accepts both voluntary and involuntary patients. Voluntary patients may self-refer for assessment and admission by calling 606-678-3440.
We accept most insurances as well as self-pay.
