Counseling Walk-in Clinics
Want to talk? We do, too. Our Walk-In Clinics provide quick access to no-fee confidential therapy services for children and youth 0 to 18 years and their families.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we offer virtual walk-in service (by phone or video) by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11:00am and 7:00pm (last appointment at 5:30pm). For July and August appointments will be scheduled Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
To speak with a professional and/or to arrange for virtual support for a child or youth or their family, please call 705-645-4426 ext.6270. Someone is available to receive your call Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm.
This service is not intended for emergencies. If you or someone you know is experiencing a child and youth mental health crisis, please call 1-844-287-9072 or contact police.
What is the Counseling Walk-In Clinic (CWIC) ?
The Counseling Walk-In Clinic (CWIC) provides access to no-fee confidential therapy services for children and youth ages 0 to 18 years and their families. You will meet with trained therapists for immediate problem solving and helpful, supportive conversation. For many, a single session is enough but the clinic may be used more than once if needed. The reasons to visit the CWIC may be new issues or difficulties that have been present for a longer period of time.
Who Can Attend?
No referrals or appointments are necessary. We encourage the entire family or all those living in the home to attend the session. Any youth, 12 years or older can attend on their own and receive service.
