“Let’s Talk” is a program that provides easy access to informal and confidential consultations with counselors from the Student Counseling Service. There are three “Let’s Talk” sites. No appointment necessary and no cost to you. If you prefer, you do not have to give your name.

The counselor will listen to your concerns and provide support, perspective, and suggestions for resources.

Unlike services provided at SCS, “Let’s Talk” is not formal therapy: it is a drop-in service where students can have an informal consultation with a counselor from time to time.

Let's Talk is open to all University of Chicago undergraduate and graduate students. “Let’s Talk” is the best fit for the following people:

  • students who are not sure about therapy and wonder what it’s like to talk with a therapist;
  • students who are not interested in therapy but would like the perspective of a counselor;
  • students who have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through;
  • students who have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do.
