Let's Talk: Offsite, Walk-in Consultations

The Let's Talk program provides easy access to brief, free, and informal consultations with UHS mental health counselors. These confidential services can help you access supportive counseling and consultation, gain perspective, and explore resources and options that might help meet your needs.

  • No paperwork needed
  • Video or phone available
  • Visits are first come, first served

Reasons to Attend Let’s Talk

  • Stress management, academic challenges, and career development
  • Health and wellness
  • Anxiety and mood concerns
  • Challenges faced by students
  • Balancing academics, work, and family 

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

Let's Talk is a free, confidential program available to any student at various locations across campus. No appointment is necessary, there is no paperwork to complete. Visits are first come, first serve and the wait time to see the Let's Talk Counselor is usually very brief. All students are welcome to visit Let's Talk. 

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. "Let's Talk" is designed for students who want to talk to a counselor casually. It is not appropriate for students needing urgent help. If you are in crisis, please call or go to UHS
