Let’s Talk is a free service where CU Boulder students can check in for an informal and confidential consultation with a counselor. CAPS is offering Let’s Talk both in person and virtually.

No appointment is necessary. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis at various times throughout the week.   

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: While providers' affiliations are listed above, all of our Let's Talk providers are generalists and are able to see any student.

    The best time to reach a counselor is at the start of the Let’s Talk time block. If you are unable to reach a counselor and have urgent concerns, please refer to our emergency resources above.

    Please note: This service is not a substitute for formal counseling and does not constitute mental health treatment. Let's Talk is NOT set up for crisis services.

    • 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
