Let's Talk! We are here to listen!
Let's Talk is a program that provides easy access to informal confidential conversations with clinicians from the UK Counseling Center. Clinicians hold walk-in hours at 5 sites around campus Monday through Thursday. There is no appointment or fee necessary.
- This service is open to all University of Kentucky undergraduate, graduate and professional students.
- Speaking with a clinician can help provide support, insight, and information about resources.

- Let’s Talk is informal conversations only. Let’s Talk is not counseling.
- Let’s Talk conversations are not part of students’ releasable records.
- Although Let's Talk clinicians are mental health professionals, Let's Talk conversations do not constitute mental health treatment.
- Limits to confidentiality- When there is an immediate threat of harm to you or others, Let's Talk counselors are required by law to report this. When a minor, elderly person, or someone otherwise incapacitated is being abused, Let's Talk consultants are also required by law to report this.
- If your Let's Talk clinician assesses that you could benefit from a higher level of care, every effort will be made to refer you to other appropriate resources at the university and surrounding community.
