Strategies to minimize harm and maximize self-care.
Let’s Talk provides no-cost, informal, confidential consultations at locations around campus throughout the academic year. No appointment is necessary, so you can drop in during the times identified below. Speaking with a Let’s Talk counselor can help provide insight, support, and information about other resources. Let’s Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and doesn’t constitute mental health treatment, but counselors can listen to specific problems, help explore solutions, and introduce you to what it’s like to speak to a member of our staff.
