  • Yalla! Let's Chat is a peer-led support group, which explores the Southwest Asia & North Africa/Middle Eastern/Arab student experience.

  • Talk It Out is a drop-in service that provides students with easy access to informal and confidential consultation with counselors from Counseling and Psychological Services (C&PS). Although Talk It Out counselors are professionals, it is not a substitute for therapy and does not constitute mental health treatment. The purpose of Talk It Out is to speak with counselors about your concerns, get help with problem solving, and ask any questions you may have about therapy or C&PS. Talk It Out counselors can also guide you through the process of setting up an appointment at C&PS or discuss potential resources both on and off campus.
