What is Let's Talk?
A free, confidential, one-on-one, drop-in opportunity to informally consult with a Counseling Services mental health provider. Let’s Talk is not therapy, but you can talk about anything on your mind, share something that recently took place, or ask questions/seek guidance (e.g., how to help a friend, how to seek services, wanting to learn more about a coping skill). We help one student at a time, so there may be a brief waiting period to be seen.
Wednesdays, 2 PM-2:50 PM at 172H - yakʔitʸutʸu Hall Conference Room
Thursdays, 2-2:50 PM via zoom: https://zoom.us/j/97713861468

Let’s Talk: Anything & Everything
Let’s Talk: Anything & Everything is designed for students with marginalized identities who want to meet with therapists committed to inclusion, cultural humility, and to doing their own internal work to challenge cultural and/or privileged biases.
We understand that many communities have rightful mistrust of the medical and mental health fields due to past and present injustices and disparities of care. Along with that, there are communities where discussing emotional health may feel especially vulnerable or would be something family members might not support. We honor the difficulties and obstacles that can arise when trying to access care, so we have created this informal, casual space to connect.
