What is Let's Talk?
Let's Talk is a program that connects EWU students with support from experienced counselors from Counseling and Psychological Services without an appointment. CAPS counselors currently hold drop-in hours at three sites on campus. Let's Talk offers informal consultation—it is not a substitute for regular therapy, counseling, or psychiatric care. Talking with a counselor can help provide insight, solutions, and information about other available resources.
Let's Talk drop-in visits are:
- No appointment necessary

*Due to high demand for individual counseling, CAPS Let's Talk program is currently suspended. We hope to re-initiate this service during spring quarter 2020.
How does Let's Talk work?
Appointments are first-come, first-served. The counselor on-site will listen closely to your concerns and provide support, perspective, and suggestions for resources.
Let's Talk is different from ongoing counseling, which usually consists of weekly or bi-weekly 45-50 minute sessions. Let's Talk is not formal therapy or counseling: It is a drop-in service where students can engage in a brief informal consultation with a counselor.
Is Let's Talk the right choice for me?
There is no wrong reason to seek counsel through Let's Talk, or CAPS. However, Let's Talk is an especially good fit for students who:
- Are not sure about counseling and wonder what it's like to talk with a counselor.
- Are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor.
- Have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through.
- Have a concern about a friend and want some guidance about what to do.
