Let’s Talk is designed to provide students with convenient access to informal and confidential consultations with counselors from Counseling Services, a part of the Lauderdale Center for Student Health & Counseling. Although Let’s Talk counselors are licensed professionals, Let’s Talk conversations are not therapy. These consultations are not a substitute for regular counseling, and they do not constitute mental health treatment.
We highly recommend that you seek treatment from Counseling Services or elsewhere if you currently meet any or all of the following conditions:
- Require more than a brief consultation to address your needs;
- Are experiencing a high level of distress;
- Feel extremely depressed or anxious;
- Have active thoughts of harming yourself or someone else.
As noted above, regular therapy appointments can be made by calling the main Counseling Services office at 585-245-5716. Additional after-hours assistance can be accessed by visiting our Crisis & Emergency Resource page.
