Chat with a Counselor *Special SOE Hours*

Counselors will be available on-site at the SOE for Chat with a Counselor hours. During these visits, students can ask questions about mental health, learn strategies to manage stress/academics/life, and also learn about mental health resources and services at JHU. There will be individual appointments that can be scheduled ahead of time, as well as open sessions when anyone can come by to talk with the counselor.

Chat with a Counselor – Individual meetings

  • Informal, private, one-on-one visits for students to meet with a Johns Hopkins University mental health clinician who can answer questions about mental health, share resources, and help connect students to services. Students can select the day and time that works best and can select between a Zoom or in-person visit at the SOE building. Counselors will be available several days a week:
  • Mondays in SOE Room 131 – Sign up here.
  • Thursdays in SOE Room 131 – Sign up here.

Chat with a Counselor – Open Sessions

  • Informal sessions where anyone can come by to ask questions about mental health and learn resources. All are welcome and you can bring a friend!
