Let's Talk

We are committed to supporting student mental health while also responding to the current global pandemic and prioritizing health and safety for students and employees. To this end, Counseling Services is currently offering all services remotely by phone and HIPAA-compliant Zoom.  

What is Let's Talk?

Free, confidential, drop-in, one-on-one, informal consultation spaces with a mental health provider, offered to Cal Poly Students. Let’s Talk is not therapy, but you can talk about anything on your mind, discuss the heaviness of the current moment, and/or ask questions or for guidance or support (e.g., how to help a friend, how to seek services, wanting to learn more about a coping skill).  




Let’s Talk 

Wednesdays and Thursdays 
2 PM-2:50 PM

If you have any questions prior to dropping into Let’s Talk please email Ryan Shurson at  


Let’s Talk: Anything & Everything  

Fridays, 11 AM-11:50 AM 

Let’s Talk: Anything & Everything is designed for underrepresented students and/or students with marginalized identities who want to meet with therapists committed to inclusion, cultural humility, and doing their own internal work to challenge cultural and/or privileged biases.   

We understand that many communities have rightful mistrust 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.  

We thank Student Diversity & Belonging and the Disability Resource Center for their collaboration on this space.  

If you have any questions prior to dropping into Let’s Talk: A&E please email Dr. Sarah Colwell at  



Thursdays (Apr. 22, May 20, Jun. 3) @ 2-3:00 PM

UndocuTalk is a space for students who are undocumented, from mixed status families, and their allies who want to speak with therapists who have gone through UndocuAlly training and work closely with the Dream Center. 

If you have any questions prior to dropping into UndocuTalk please email Dr. Ana Cabezas at
