"Let's Talk" is designed for students who are wanting to talk to a counselor casually. This is not a formal counseling session. Speaking with a counselor in a confidential setting can help you access support, provide perspective, help you explore resources and options and discuss how counseling might be helpful.
Services are topic-specific and aim to help students strengthen coping skills, problem solve, and identify resources. Social Services is open to all registered UC Berkeley students regardless of insurance plan.
Same-day 45-minute session focused on what is top of mind for you at the moment and your counselor will provide some immediate support.
Students interested in an evaluation for psychiatric medication need first to meet with a counselor in either Counseling & Psychological Services or Social Services.
Students can access free counseling appointments through our partnership with humanest. Counselors are available seven days a week, including evenings, and appointments can be booked online.
