Each semester Student Health and Wellness (SHAW) offers a variety of counseling groups, workshops, and drop-in consultations. These are programs in which students share/disclose concerns, reflect, learn new skills, practice new ideas and behaviors, receive feedback, and give feedback in a supportive environment. Every program is different and they meet at different times and for different lengths.

Our groups and workshops provide opportunities for students to:

  • receive and give emotional support
  • improve self-awareness and social skills
  • learn to deal with personal issues
  • improve self-esteem and/or self-confidence
  • enhance interpersonal perspective on individual concerns and group concerns
  • decrease loneliness and isolation

This a free drop-in consultation open to all students. It is confidential. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Location TBD
Every Tuesday
4-5 p.m. 

Let's Talk is best fit for:

  • Students who are not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like to talk with a counselor
  • Students who are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
  • Students who have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through
  • Students who have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do

Let's Talk is not a good fit for:

  • Students experiencing current thoughts of wanting to hurt themselves or someone else
  • Students with concerns for their safety
  • Students having a psychotic episode

Let’s Talk is not designed to be a crisis service. If you need to speak with someone more urgently, please utilize the campus and community resources on the SHAW website or call the office for more details at 641-269-3230
