Confidential Support


There are several resources available, and we strongly encourage individuals to be aware of those options and seek help.


Berea College’s professional counselors and chaplains Rev. Loretta Reynolds, LeSette Wright, and Jake Hofmeister can offer you confidential support. After hours or on the weekend, the counselor and chaplain on call can be reached by contacting Public Safety, in case of emergency.
