Let's Talk

let's talk sign in norris

Let’s Talk is a program that provides drop-in consultations at locations around campus for Northwestern students. It’s free, no appointment is necessary, and students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Just walk in for an informal, friendly, and confidential consultation. Speaking with a counselor consultant can help provide insight, solutions, and information about other resources.

Let’s Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and doesn't constitute mental health treatment, but the counseling consultants can listen to your specific problems and introduce you to what it’s like to speak to a member of our staff.

No topic is off-limits. Common concerns include:

  • stress
  • sadness
  • worry
  • relationships
  • academic performance
  • family problems
  • financial struggles
  • adjustment
  • culture shock
