Walk in clinics are clinics where people can get easy access to counseling services. They are often found in hospitals and community mental health centres but are increasingly being set up in places such as supermarkets, railway stations etc where they are known in the US as convenient care clinics.
In such clinics people, particularly those in at risk groups who find it problematic to access services such as (the indigent, drug users, young people etc), can receive free psychological help and advice. The clinics may be staffed by volunteers with limited counselling training but increasingly where the clinics are set up as part of mental health services professional staff are employed.
