Quick Info About Walk-In

You do not need an appointment. Just call or login to Walk-In clinic times. Services are first come, first served, so there may be a short wait, although there are usually about four clinicians available to serve the people who want access.
Typically, counseling sessions are 30 minutes to an hour long, and are held in private Zoom breakout rooms. You may remain anonymous if you wish. Walk-In services are strictly confidential.
About half of our clients access services only once, but you and your counselor may decide that additional work is appropriate. These visits you can make by appointment. We can also refer you to other helping organizations for additional services that may be helpful, including longer term care and support.
If you have a follow up appointment please be on time for a phone call or video visit, or call if you are not able to make the appointment. We encourage you to communicate directly with your counselor by calling their voicemail number and leaving a message. You may also call our front desk during regular business hours. We will pick up the messages and help you connect with your counselor if you’ve forgotten their voice mail number.
Counselors often schedule their day according to their appointments, so please call as soon as you know if you won’t be available for a scheduled appointment.
There is no charge for our walk-in or appointment counseling services. However, you may make a donation to help cover the costs of the services we are providing. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and make it possible for us to continue to offer free services. You can mail this to us at: 2421 Chicago Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55404; or go to our website (walkin.org) and donate online.
Walk-In services are available to everyone. We welcome all people regardless of age, ethnic background, race, marital status, sexual/affectional orientation, disability or economic status.
