Back in February, a unanimous council decision at the City of Thorold meant that children, youth and their families would soon have access to mental health services in the heart of their community.
As we were readying the opening of the ninth walk-in clinic, COVID-19 struck and we have been in a holding pattern ever since. Today, we are happy to announce the opening of Thorold’s walk-in clinic, hosted at Thorold Public Library and are proud to have our services more readily available to communities who need us. Kim Rossi, Director of Philanthropy & PR at Pathstone
The Thorold clinic will be open every Monday, from 9 am- 4:30 pm at Thorold Public Library, starting this Monday, July 20. Due to Covid-19, an appointment is needed to ensure we avoid overcrowding and proper PPE will be provided by Pathstone. As always, mental health support will be offered in-person by a Pathstone clinician with no referral, cost or health card needed.
I would like to thank Councillor Sentance for spearheading this initiative and Council for their unanimous support. Having a Hear & Now Walk-In Clinic in the City of Thorold will provide our residents with access to Mental Health Services, which are essential to every Community. Terry Ugulini, Mayor of the City of Thorold
We are very excited to enter into this partnership with Pathstone and their walk-in clinic program. This could not have happened without unanimous support from our council, staff and mayor. We want to help anyone who is in crisis or just needs to talk and I believe this is a great start. Ken Sentance, Thorold City Councillor
Over the past 12 months, we saw over 7,000 clients at Pathstone, of that nearly 1,400 came to us through our walk-in clinics. This program is serving the purpose we knew it would which is to reach children and youth right when they need us. Localized walk-in clinics also mean we are removing barriers to service.
With the commitment from the City of Thorold, they become the ninth walk-in clinic operating in Niagara. All sites are open to children and youth up to age 18 as well as parents / caregivers who want to talk to our clinicians about their children. We understand that sometimes kids do not want to come, but their parents can talk to us about their concerns and we can give them support and tools to help their child. Tara Kelly, Clinical Manager at Pathstone
