During this challenging time of COVID-19, here is a brief statement about Walk-In’s philosophy and practice:
- Walk-In provides an essential service in this community, and we will continue to run counseling clinics as long as we have volunteers to staff them.
- We are sure there will be bugs in this system and appreciate your patience as we try to work them out.
- It is important for us also to keep in perspective the purpose of the disruptive changes happening around us, and not to respond with panic. At Walk-In we have been practicing social distancing and encourage everyone to do so. Collectively we can slow the spread of the virus and prevent hospital and health clinics from being overwhelmed.
- This is, in fact, one of our primary roles here at Walk-In . . . counseling that helps prevent emotional and mental health issues from escalating and resulting in ER visits.
- We are all in this together – social distancing is not just to protect ourselves, but also to protect our most physically vulnerable neighbors.
