Chat with a Counselor

“Chat with a Counselor” is an online drop-in mental health service that offers informal, confidential, one-on-one visits for students to meet with a Mental Health Services staff member.  If you have questions about mental health, want to get strategies for managing stress/academics/life, want to find resources that fit your needs and identities, come chat with us!

Chat with a Counselor is not a substitute for counseling and does not constitute mental health treatment. Counselors can listen to specific problems, help explore solutions and introduce you to what it’s like to speak with a member of our staff. Anyone with an immediate, urgent situation or crisis concern should not utilize Chat with a Counselor but instead contact the on-call counselor by calling 410-516-8278 and pressing “1” at any time 24/7.
