Let's Talk

Dear colleagues,

Let’s Talk is a new and exciting program for UWM students! It provides easy access to informal and confidential support and consultation offered by counselors from Norris Health Center's Counseling and Consultation Services. Counselor consultants will hold drop-in hours at various sites around campus Monday through Thursday. All students are welcome. There is no fee, no appointment necessary, and students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Let's Talk was developed at Cornell University and has been duplicated in at least 15 campuses in the country. The program has received national recognition and been cited in the following articles: "Reaching Students Who Won't Walk In," The Expanding Safety Net," and "Eliminating Racial Disparities in College Completion and Achievement: Current Initiatives, New Ideas, and Assessment."

Examples of who may benefit from Let's Talk:

  • Students not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like
  • Students not interested in ongoing counseling but would like a counselor’s perspective
  • Students who have a specific problem and want to talk it through
  • tudents who have a concern about a friend and want some ideas about what to do

A flyer about Let's Talk is attached(https://www4.uwm.edu/norris/documents/LetsTalkflyer.pdf) so please print, post, and hand out to promote this new program!
