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.
