The Women’s Initiative is offering greater access to same-day mental health support with two new free weekly walk-in clinics.

The expansion includes new Friday morning walk-in clinics from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. as well as new evening hours on Mondays from 5 to 7 p.m. During these times, one-on-one sessions with a counselor are offered free of charge.

“Our goal is to ensure that every woman in our community has access to affordable, effective mental health care when she needs it, regardless of ability to pay,” said Executive Director Elizabeth Irvin, LCSW. “Being open for additional free walk-in wellness consults is another important step toward that goal.”

Walk-in clinics at The Women’s Initiative can provide immediate short-term assistance including tools for self-care, emotional support, assessment of needs and goals, referral services, and resource connection.
