“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)
