Let's Talk! Program

Let's talk!Having problems with your roommate? Just broke up with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Maybe you just had a really stressful week and you just need to get it all out?

Everybody needs to talk now and then.

Let's Talk! is a student peer counseling service offered by Manchester University Counseling Services. You can connect with trained student assistants to discuss issues relevant to your life – whether they’re emotional, social or academically-related.

Meet our Let’s Talk! assistants below and see how they can best provide assistance. They’re people just like you who can lend the friendly ear you need to get through your challenging situations.

Use this link to contact an assistant, and someone will be in touch with you within 48 hours.

 

This is NOT an emergency service. If you need emergency assistance, please contact your RA, Campus Safety (5999) or the Bowen Center is available 24 hours a day at 800-342-5653.
