Counseling and Consultation Services

Let's Talk Drop-In Service

Let's Talk is going virtual! Let's (Tele)Talk is a drop-in service that offers informal, confidential, consultation with a Counseling & Consultation Services staff member by Zoom. Students can learn more about CCS, problem-solve, or just begin a conversation about a concern. This is not to be used for crisis situations. Students can still consult with one of our staff outside of using the Let's (Tele)Talk times below by calling our office (317-940-9385) to arrange a phone call or Zoom meeting at a time convenient to them.


Let's (Tele)Talk Hours

Spring 2021


Let’s (Tele)Talk is available during the times listed below. Please use the relevant link to access the Zoom meeting with a therapist. Students will be seen individually for 15–20 minutes on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be a wait in the virtual waiting room if the therapist is seeing another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Therapists are only available during the time listed at these links. If you would like to speak to someone at a different time, please call our office.

Let’s (Tele)Talk is not a substitute for therapy and does not constitute mental health treatment. Other options for care include individual and group therapy, 24/7 phone consultations with local hospitals such as St. Vincent Stress Center at 317-338-4800, or, in a crisis, either St. Vincent Stress Center, another local 24-hour care option, or 911.

Disclaimer: While we strive to ensure the confidentiality of Let’s (Tele)Talk sessions, there are privacy risks associated with any online platform.
