What to expect when I call Help Ahead?

An experienced mental health worker will ask you a short series of questions. These questions are designed to help the worker connect you to the right What’s Up Walk-In® Clinic. If you agree, the worker will contact the most appropriate and available agency and connect you to them directly.

Did you know?

There are 5,000 counselling visits to the what’s up walk-in each year across all locations.

The most common issues talked about are anxiety, depression, family conflict, and school related issues.

Only 6% of people who use the clinic are referred to long-term more intensive services. This demonstrates the effectiveness of the model even with complex issues.
