At Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital we understand that good health is more than just physical. 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. 

Our treatment is guided by the philosophy that each patient is a unique individual. We strive to provide a planned program of individualized, effective behavioral health care. Our multi-disciplinary approach enlists the services of a dedicated team of psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, therapists, nurses, social workers, mental health technicians, and recreation therapists.  

Assessment and Admissions: 24/7

Compassionate and caring professional staff members will take your call and then consult with the attending psychiatrist to ensure clients receive the appropriate level of care. Referrals to our behavioral health units may be made by physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, ministers, nurses, home health agencies, family members, therapists, teachers and other agencies.

Patients experiencing behavioral health emergencies who present to the Emergency Department at Lake Cumberland will be evaluated for admission, and the appropriate level of care will be recommended for treatment.

If inpatient treatment is recommended, admissions can be processed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To obtain a free, confidential assessment, call 606.678.3440.
