Let’s Talk Series Begins Across Danforth Campus

“Let’s Talk” is a program that provides students with easy access to free, brief, confidential consultations with counselors from Mental Health Services (MHS). MHS counselors hold walk-in hours at multiple selected sites on campus during which students can stop by when their schedule permits- no appointments needed. While “Let’s Talk” consultation sessions are not to replace traditional counseling services offered in-house at MHS, they can help provide insight, solutions, and information about other resources.


Let’s Talk is cost-free, convenient, and confidential.
