Let's Talk 

Let's Talk Drop-In Consultations are informal, brief, free consultations with UHS mental health counselors.

They do not require any insurance or paperwork. UHS counselors have expertise and competency in working with underrepresented students on campus. All counselors work with students who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns.

Please note: Let's Talk consultations are not formal therapy sessions and do not constitute mental health treatment. We are not able to assist with the Disabled Students' Program (DSP) and other documentation support during Let's Talk. You will need to schedule an individual counseling appointment for supporting documentation.
