What is the What’s Up Walk-In (WUWI)?
The What’s Up Walk-In (WUWI) network is Toronto’s only free, six-day-a-week mental health counselling walk-in service for infants, children, youth, young adults, and families. Therapists offer walk-in, single, solution focused sessions. The service is a collaborative initiative of 6 publicly funded Children and Youth Mental Health agencies that operate 7 sites in the City of Toronto.
The clinics help with issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidal ideation, sexual identity matters, bullying, behavioural concerns, addictions, and anything else that might be on one’s mind.

What’s Up Walk-In is designed to support the mental health needs of Toronto’s infants, children, youth and young adults up to their 29th birthday. Parents, families and caregivers may access service along with their child.
What is single session therapy?
