Walk-In Wellness Clinic

A recent survey of over 33,000 students at 34 Canadian universities revealed deeply concerning statistics regarding the mental health of young adults. Of those surveyed, 89% of students said they were overwhelmed by everything they had to do and 56% reported that they felt overpowering anxiety. Another survey found that 82% worried about their ability to perform in academics and 91% reported significant fear and worry about their mental health.

In an effort to address this urgent issue, the Psychology Clinic (part of the Clinical Psychology Program) launched the Walk-In Wellness Clinic on the UBC Okanagan Campus in November 2018. The clinic provides a low-barrier walk-in mental health service for students, staff, faculty and the greater BC community. Since April 2020, the Walk-In Clinic has adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic and offered virtual telehealth/video services for those in need.

To date, the Walk-In Wellness Clinic has provided over 350 appointments for students and community members, providing immediate psychological intervention, and as necessary, arranging for ongoing mental health supports. Further, efforts are undertaken to collaborate with other health professionals involved in the client’s care to ensure that comprehensive and integrated mental health care.

Your gift on Giving Day will help the clinic to continue providing low-barrier access to mental services with a registered psychologist, provide innovative training opportunities for doctoral students, and allow clients/students to take advantage of cutting edge adaptive online mental initiatives.
