KELOWNA: New Service at MHSU

Hello everyone!  There is a new service at Kelowna Mental Health and Substance Use called Walk-In Counselling.  It is available (free) on Mon-Wed-Fri 9:00 AM-11:30 AM, and Tue-Thu 1 PM-3 PM. 

Also, MHSU’s Access program (formerly called Intake) is available Mon-Fri from 9 AM-12 PM.  See information below, and attached sheets.

Walk-In Counselling:

Allows people to come in that day and receive counselling.   They can also return to that service anytime they feel necessary.  Clients end up becoming attached to a service and not necessarily one clinician.  This is not taking the place of other services, but creating a continuum of counselling services.  The approach is strengths based and looks to help clients focus on successes and empowering them to focus strategically on one main issue that day, just like you might do with a doctor at a walk in clinic.  One of the misunderstandings of this service is that clients “only get one session.“   It’s more of an approach of “one session at a time” in this particular service.   Clients are welcome to return as much as they want or ask for traditional counselling services.
