CAPS: Let’s Talk Initiative

(Weekly) Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00 PM in SciLi 518

Let’s Talk is a community-based program designed to outreach to student populations that would not otherwise seek counseling services. Students and counselors engage in brief conversations regarding counseling services, community resources, and simple problem solving. Those who might benefit include students who are curious or uncertain about the benefits of counseling or those seeking to improve upon their self care. Conversations with Let's Talk counselors are confidential, with a few very rare exceptions. Dr. Linda Welsh of Counseling & Psychological Services will be at the FLi Center, Room 518, piloting Let’s Talk this semester.  All students are welcome to come by the lounge and speak with her.
