Informal Consultations

Let’s Talk is a free service where CU Boulder students can stop by for an informal and confidential consultation with a counselor. No appointment necessary; students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis at various Let's Talk locations across campus. 

Let’s Talk counselors can help provide insight, solutions and information about additional resources.

Students commonly visit with concerns about stress, sadness, worry, relationships, academic performance, family problems and financial struggles. 

Please note: This service is not a substitute for formal counseling and does not constitute mental health treatment.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:

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

Let's Talk is a service of Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS).

If you are feeling desperate or thinking about suicide, or you’re afraid for the well-being of someone you know, you can call CAPS at 303-492-2277. After-hours phone support is available 24/7.
