Abstract

Since 1969 the Walk-In counseling Center in Minneapolis has offered free, no-red-tape counseling to individuals and families alienated from traditional services. All counseling is provided by teams of mental health professionals who volunteer their services. The emphasis is on crisis and short-term counseling with a maximum of ten sessions. The center was established mainly to serve young drug abusers, but the clientele has diversified to include individuaLs of all ages and socioeconomic groups. The center also conducts an active consultation and education program with more than 200 community groups a year.
