Let’s Talk is a program that provides informal virtual drop-in consultations for U of M students throughout the academic year. No appointment is necessary, so you can drop in virtually during the scheduled times. Let’s Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and does not constitute mental health treatment, but counselors can listen to specific problems, provide support, help explore solutions and give information about other resources.
Let's Talk is not designed to provide crisis support-if you are currently experiencing a mental health crisis please utilize one of these resources.
