The Durham Counselling Walk-in Clinic (DCWIC) is a free, confidential counselling "walk-in" clinic that provides services for children and youth ages 3 - 19 years and their families. Currently being delivered virtually, the clinic is run by a community collaborative and is staffed by providers from: Catholic Family Services, Lakeridge Health (Pinewood Centre), Carea Community Health Centre, Frontenac Youth Services, Family Services Durham, and Lakeridge Health - Child, Youth and Family Program.
The clinic provides same day counselling and runs on a first come first served basis. People come to us for many different reasons including family issues, strategies for positive change, stress management, relationship challenges, parenting support, youth development, substance use concerns, etc.
Our clinic is very knowledgeable about Durham Region and can provide information about community resources and services. Often clients feel better about their situation after one session, and are hopeful about moving forward.
