CCS Services

For students not already engaged with services, consultations of multiple types are available including urgent appointments and drop-in consultations (Let's Talk).

ODI Scholars can begin to explore mental health support services by scheduling a phone screening with CCS. Choose the option of “ODI Scholar” when signing up in order to see Peter's availability for a phone screening.

On the CCS website you will find a video series about managing stress. Students can still access the Ohio State Wellness App for tips to manage mental duress as well as the After Hours Support Line, Protocall, (call the CCS front desk at 614-292-5766 and press “2”) during the evening and weekend hours.

Let's Talk Consultations

Let's Talk provides drop-in, informal mental health consultations on a first-come, first-served basis. It's FREE and CONFIDENTIAL and open to all currently registered Ohio State students. It's a great option for students who may not need traditional counseling, but who could benefit from one-on-one support and consultation. You may select one of the counselors listed below, or you can select the first available time.

Let's Talk sessions are available various times, Monday through Friday via Zoom or by phone.
