Drop-in Sessions

Drop-in sessions offered by the CTC are an easy way to connect more informally with a CTC therapist. Students have the opportunity to learn about mental health topics and develop skills that support their mental wellness without engaging in regular individual or group therapy.

Drop-in sessions:

  • Require no long-term commitment—come whenever it feels helpful!
  • Are generally focused on a particular topic or skill—read the descriptions below.
  • Are confidential - no information is gathered or kept about who attends.
  • Are not counseling or a crisis service.

Let's Talk

Let's Talk provides students with an opportunity to have an informal, confidential, anonymous conversation with a CTC therapist.
