Are you needing some additional support or help with something? Let's talk, SEMO!
Frequently Asked Questions
Let's Talk, SEMO is the best fit for the following people:
- Students who are not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like to talk to a counselor
- Students who are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
- Students who have a specific problem and would like someone with whom to talk it through
- Students who have a concern about a friend and want some ideas about what to do
One exception is that counselors may need to share information in a situation in which safety for yourself or others is a concern. Let's Talk, SEMO counselor consultants keep brief written notes of their contacts with students in the event that there is an emergency, or when a student is referred to the Center for Behavioral Health and Accessibility. In these situations, other CBHA counseling staff may see these brief notes. Information is also collected about attendance, demographic information, etc. in order to keep track of the number of students served. Let's Talk, SEMO visits and notes are never reported on a student’s official University record.
We don’t want anything to be a barrier to students accessing help. If you have further questions about confidentiality, we encourage you to discuss them with a Let's Talk, SEMO counselor consultant.
