UVM’s Let’s Talk program is based on the Let’s Talk program developed at Cornell University. Some of the content seen here has been gratefully adapted from the Let's Talk websites at Cornell and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We appreciate the leadership and support of Matt Boone, LCSW, at Cornell, as well as the growing number of schools that have also launched Let’s Talk programs in an effort to make connections to resources and support more accessible.

The Let’s Talk program provides easy access to informal, brief, drop-in consultations with counselors from UVM’s Counseling and Psychiatry Services (CAPS). No appointments are necessary, there is no paperwork to complete, visits are first come, first served, and the wait time to see the Let’s Talk counselor is usually very brief. Any current undergraduate, graduate or medical student is welcome to visit Let’s Talk. Speaking with a counselor in a confidential setting can help you access support, feedback, options, as well as information about a variety of resources.
