Let's Talk: Drop-in Consultation

Health Services counselors are available for brief, informal, drop in consultations.  These sessions are free and confidential and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional Information:

  • Let's Talk is a program that provides quick and easy access to informal consultations with UMD Health Services Counselors
  • An appointment is not necessary, students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Let’s Talk is open to UMD undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in classes
  • Students come with a variety of concerns including stress, relationship issues, academic performance, financial challenges, roommate issues, homesickness, family problems and many more

Let’s Talk is the best fit for the following people:

  • Students who are not sure about counseling and wonder what it is like 
  • Students not interested in ongoing counseling but need information or the perspective of a counselor
  • Students who are concerned about a friend and want ideas about how to support them or assist them in accessing counseling

Although Let’s Talk counselors are professionals, it is not a substitute for psychotherapy or formal counseling.  If that is what you are seeking we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our counselors.

Let’s Talk offers a confidential place to talk through your concerns, get support and information about additional skills and  resources available to support you.

Sometimes you just need someone to listen, we can provide that.

We don’t want anything to be a barrier to accessing help.  If you have further questions about confidentiality or other concerns, we encourage you to discuss them with your counselor.
