The White Bird Clinic is expanding its mental health counseling department

The White Bird Clinic is expanding its mental health counseling department after years of pandemic made the need for these services even more urgent.

“Any of us readers reading these words, you’ve had a pretty tough two or three years,” said Chris Hecht, executive coordinator at White Bird Clinic. “We all have.”

But for those with less support, resources and income, the added stressors made it even harder to cope, Hecht said.

The White Bird Clinic is responding to the need by hiring three new mental health clinicians on staff, which will create jobs for about 40 new clients. In the spring, counseling services will move from 341 E. 12th to 1910 Pearl St., giving counselors more space to work. For now, all mental health consultations are conducted remotely via Telehealth.
