Join us for the eighth webinar in our series on “Responding to Mental Health Crises” to learn about quick access to counselling through two important Ottawa initiatives:  The Walk-In Counselling Clinic (TWICC) and Counselling Connect/Counseling on connecte (CC-Coc). By providing same day or next day brief mental health and addictions counselling across the lifespan and in multiple languages these services support clients in need of immediate help. Join us for this webinar to learn more about these services and their place in the continuum of mental health and addictions supports.
The Walk-In Clinic has been operating since 2014 providing multilingual, accessible counselling services at a dozen locations.  Counselling Connect, a virtual hub for booking into pooled single session counselling resources across the sector, is a pandemic innovation that launched in May of 2020. With the help of over 20 community partners (including TWICC), 10,000 children, youth, families and adults have been served through this community driven initiative to date.
