Let's Talk is a free drop-in service that connects Pacific students with support from experienced mental health therapists from Pacific CAPS. Let's Talk offers informal consultation and is a place where you can talk about your questions or concerns, explore solutions, and identify resources. Please note, Let's Talk is not therapy. It is your opportunity to come chat about a multitude of topics where there is no appointment necessary.
How does Let's Talk work?
Appointments are first-come, first-served. The mental health therapist will listen to your questions or concerns and provide support, perspective, and suggestions for resources. Let's Talk is different from ongoing therapy, which usually consists of regularly scheduled sessions.
What are the time limits on Let's Talk conversations?
Most Let's Talk sessions last anywhere from 10-20 minutes. The length of the conversation is typically determined by whether or not someone else is waiting and the amount of time that you need to talk through whatever is going on for you. If you need a lot of time or have many things to talk about, it may be helpful for you to schedule a session with a mental health therapist at CAPS.
Is Let's Talk the right choice for me?
There is no wrong reason to seek support through Let's Talk or Counseling and Psychological Services. However, Let's Talk is an especially good fit for students who:
- Are not sure about therapy and wonder what it is like to talk to a mental health therapist;
- Are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a mental health therapist;
- Have a specific question and would like someone with whom to talk it through; and/or
- Have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do to support your friend.
