Mental Health Clinic Ottawa
Is the Walk-in Clinic right for me?
- You are 12 to 20 years old—or the parent of a teen
- You think the solution is in your control
- You need reassurance that your reaction to a troubling situation is normal
- You can identify, with the help of a counsellor, helpful solutions, past successes, and reasonable expectations
- You are “stuck” in a feeling (anger, guilt, grief) towards a past event and are looking for ways to get “unstuck.”
A single counselling session may be enough to address your needs.
- Feeling less worried
- Preventing a temporary problem from getting worse
- Feeling less isolated
- Knowing more about the available resources in the Ottawa region
- More ideas about how to manage the problem
The Walk-in Clinic is less likely to benefit you if you are feeling suicidal right now or are actively suffering from a serious mental health diagnosis. The Walk-in Clinic is also less likely to benefit you if you feel need ongoing support to work through and escape the effects of abuse. If you are experiencing a crisis, or need to talk about any of the above, you can call the 24/7 Crisis Line at 613-260-2360 at any time.
Youth ages 12 to 20, and their parents, are welcome to access the Walk-in during the hours posted below.
