What is it?


Let's Talk
is a drop-in service that offers informal, confidential consultation with a University of South Florida Counseling Center counselor. Counselors hold walk-in hours Monday through Friday at various on-campus locations during the academic year. Students are encouraged to stop by any location to speak with a counselor about concerns, get help problem-solving and learn more about counseling services and other resources available to them at USF.


How is Let's Talk different from counseling?


What happens in a Let's Talk session?

The Let's Talk consultant will carefully listen to your concern, will mostly likely ask you some brief questions, and will work to understand your goal for coming to Let's Talk. Once your problem and goal are clear, depending upon your needs, the consultant will offer you suggestions for addressing the concern. You are welcome to return to Let's Talk at another time, but this decision is up to you.


Who should visit Let's Talk?

Let's Talk is open to all current USF students; however, Let's Talk is best suited for the following people:

 

Limits to Confidentiality

 

Conversations with Let's Talk Consultants are confidential, with a few rare exceptions. Consultants may need to share information in an emergency when there is an immediate threat of harm to yourself or to others. Consultants are required by law to report when a minor, elderly person, or someone otherwise incapacitated and unable to act on his/her own behalf is being abused. We don't want anything to be a barrier to students accessing help. If you have further questions about confidentiality, we encourage you to discuss them with a Let's Talk consultant.
