Let's Talk Drop-In Consultation

About “Let’s Talk”

The “Let’s Talk” off-site walk-in model – developed at Cornell – is nationally recognized for its success in increasing student access to mental health care.

The model has been adopted by nearly 100 universities and colleges nationwide. Please contact us for more information.

Read the article about the development of Let's Talk from the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development (CU NetID required to access; or email us for a copy).

“Let’s Talk” is a drop-in service that offers informal, confidential consultation with a Cornell Health counselor.

Counselors hold walk-in hours at various on-campus locations Monday through Friday during the academic year (see schedule below). Stop by any location to speak with a counselor about concerns, get help problem-solving, and learn more about counseling services at Cornell Health and other resources available to you at Cornell.

Let's Talk consultations are:

  • FREE for Cornell students
  • Offered first-come, first-served (no appointment necessary)
  • Confidential
  • Informal (not intended to be a substitute for traditional counseling)
