Let's Talk

Let's Talk is a program which provides you with easy access to clinicians from CAPS. This service is available for all UC students who may not need traditional counseling, but could still benefit from one-on-one support. Let's Talk is a confidential conversation over the phone or Microsoft Teams where you can ask questions, learn about mental health resources and get support from a UC CAPS therapist.



Let's Talk is free and confidential. Students can meet with a clinician for a brief 15-20 minute conversation. Students make an appointment through Bookings. Clinicians will listen to your concerns and offer support, information, and resources.

Who can use Let's Talk?

Any student can virtually attend Let's Talk consultation, typically it's the best fit for students who:

  • Are not sure about counseling or wonder what it's like to talk to a counselor;
  • Are not interested in counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor;
  • Have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through; 
  • Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like ideas about what to do.
