Let's Talk

*LET’S TALK BLACK MENTAL HEALTH IS INTENDED FOR BLACK AND AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS

Let’s Talk provides easy access to informal consultation with mental health counselors from the GVSU University Counseling Center. 

Let’s Talk consultations are…

  • Free for currently enrolled GVSU students
  • Offered first-come, first-served (no appointment necessary)
  • Typically, about 20-25 minutes in length
  • Informal, and not a substitute for counseling
  • No appropriate for urgent concerns or mental health emergencies. If you are in crisis, please refer to our emergency services

Let’s Talk is the best fit for students who

  • Aren’t sure about counseling or wondering what it’s like to talk to a counselor
  • Aren’t interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
  • Would like to talk through a specific problem with someone
  • May not need formal counseling, but could benefit from one-on-one support and consultation

Please note that we have both general Let’s Talk times open to everyone and some times tailored for specific groups. The counselors have expertise and competency in working with underrepresented students on campus. All counselors work with students who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and are managing the impact of living in a pandemic.

Let’s Talk is offered both in-person and virtually. If you choose to attend in-person, you must show the counselor your passing COVID self-assessment and wear a mask during the meeting.
