Let's Talk Program

Let's Talk Let’s Talk is a program that provides 10-15 minute drop-in consultations for SUU students. It’s free, no appointment is necessary, and students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. These are informal, friendly, and confidential consultation. Speaking with a counseling consultant can help provide insight, solutions, and information about other resources. Let’s Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and doesn't constitute mental health treatment, but the counseling consultants can listen to your specific problems and introduce you to what it’s like to speak to a member of our staff.

No topic is off limits. Common concerns include:

  • Stress
  • Sadness
  • Relationships
  • Family problems
  • College adjustment
  • Worry
  • Academic performance
  • Financial struggles
  • Culture shock
