“Let’s Talk” is a program that brings licensed therapists to the UNT residence halls for easy access to informal and confidential consultations. Every Thursday 3-5 pm, your UNT Housing Counselors will be at various residence halls (see schedule tab) to help you problem-solve any concerns and learn more about counseling services at UNT.

What does a “Let’s Talk” visit look like?
There is no appointment or fee necessary. A UNT ID IS REQURIED to confirm current enrollment. Consultations are available at a first-come, first-serve basis at various residence halls throughout the fall/spring semester. You will meet with a therapist to address any concerns/difficult emotions/mental health questions. The therapist will listen and provide support, perspective, and referrals to additional resources that may help you. “Let’s Talk” is not a formal counseling session, but your Let’s Talk clinician can help you determine if ongoing therapy is right for you.
