    Fall 2020 Let's Talk & QTalk Drop in Counseling Services *PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO LET'S TALK TODAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH, 2021. I WILL RETURN ON SEPTEMBER 27TH, PLEASE SEE CALENDAR BELOW. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.** Shanta Jambotkar (she/they) is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in CA available to the UC Berkeley community (students, staff, faculty) for Let's Talk phone or video consultations regarding mental health services, wellness resources, and/or specific mental health needs. Shanta is cis-female, queer woman of color, and SSWANA identified, and holds other non visible identities, challenges, and privileges. Her lived experiences as a complex cultural being inform her values and commitment to mental health supports that promote liberatory healing. Shanta provides trauma informed care through the UC Berkeley Social Services Program, and is also a member of the QTalk Drop in program. Shanta works with folks of color, queer, trans and non-binary community, and immigrant and 2nd generation students - with purpose and hope to co-create healing spaces for people who navigate mutliple, powerful, and intersectional identities. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ WHAT IS Let’s Talk The CAPS Let's Talk program provides easy access to informal, brief, consultation sessions with mental health professionals from UC Berkeley. It is free and there is no paperwork to complete. Let’s Talk sessions could be used to * learn more about mental health resources and virtual therapy services * talk about stress and anxiety related to academics and/or relationship concerns * talk about unique challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic * learn about healthy ways to cope with stress and other concerns * get emotional support and identify ways to increase social connection during shelter-in-place * create a menu of therapy options to consider, or identify a future plan of action with CAPS * get consultation on how to support a student in distress -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DISCLAIMER * Although Let’s Talk Consultations are with mental health professionals, they are not formal therapy sessions and do not constitute mental health treatment. If you would like to schedule a therapy appointment, please call the CAPS office at (510) 642-9494. * Let's Talk Consultation sessions are not an appropriate type of service for urgent concerns. For urgent issues, crisis counseling is still available through the CAPS office. Please call (510) 642-9494 to speak with someone urgently. * If you have access to a confidential and private space, located in the state of CA, you are eligible for telemental health services with Shanta Jambotkar, LCSW (licensed in CA), including a video or phone consultation. If these requirements are not met, we can still connect via phone for a brief check-in. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HOW to SCHEDULE Please leave your name (or initials), email, and THEN click the "Leave a Comment" section, and add phone number for me to call you at the scheduled time, and indicate whether you prefer a phone call or a Zoom video visit.
