If you have concerns about going to Student Mental Health and Counseling Services, a Let’s Chat counselor can help to address your concerns and explore the different options available.
No appointment is needed; just drop in. Meetings are brief (20 minutes), and you and your counselor will determine if additional follow-up is needed.
Let’s Chat is available at the Office for Minority Education (4-107) on the following dates:
Tuesdays, 5:20-7 p.m.
- September 17, 24
- October 1, 29
- November 12, 26
- December 10, 17
Thursdays, 3:20-5 p.m.

Let’s Chat is a good fit for:
- Students who are not sure about counseling and want to know what it’s like to talk with a counselor
- Students who are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
- Students who have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk about it
Students who have a concern about a friend and would like advice on what to do. Let’s Chat isn’t formal counseling; If you are very depressed or upset or feel like you need to speak with someone urgently, you can go to the Student Mental Health and Counseling Services walk-in hours (M–F, 2–4 p.m. on the third floor of E23) or call 617-253-2916 and ask to speak with the on-call clinician.
