Let’s Talk – 

Whether it’s stress, sadness,  relationship or academic problems, sharing your concerns with another person can make a positive difference. “Let’s Talk” is a brief, informal, virtual consultation with a counselor from the Student Health and Wellness Center.

If substance use is causing an imbalance in school, relationships, energy levels, or other areas of your life, consider exploring your use in a confidential and non-judgmental setting. In the BASICS (Brief Alcohol & Other Drug Screening) programs, you can safely reflect on alcohol, cannabis or other drug use, consider options for making a change, and learn about additional support.  Visit the BASICS website to learn more and to schedule an appointment.
