Let’s Chat isn’t formal counseling; If you are currently in distress or would like to connect with a clinician for mental health services, call Student Mental Health and Counseling Services at 617-253-2916 and ask to speak with a mental health clinician.

“Let’s Chat” is a good fit for:

  • Students who are not sure about the counseling process and want to know what it’s like to talk with a clinician or to learn about Student Mental Health resources
  • Students who are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a clinician
  • Students who have a specific problem and would like to talk with someone about it
  • Students who have a concern about a friend and would like advice on what to do

Students commonly seek consultation for concerns such as stress, sadness, anxiety, difficulty adjusting to school, family problems, and relationship issues.
