Let's Talk

Check out Let's Talk!

Drop in for a brief, confidential conversations with a UKCC Clinician!

Let's Talk is a program that provides easy access to informal confidential conversations with clinicians from the UK Counseling Center. 

  • No appointment or fee necessary.  
  • 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.
