The Frontline Workers Counseling Project (FWCP), is an initiative that helps connect frontline workers with free, confidential psychotherapy and counseling. Over 450 licensed and insured professional psychotherapists in the Bay Area have volunteered to offer free services through the FWCP, representing a wide range of personal and professional backgrounds, including psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, psychiatrists, and marriage and family therapists.
Workers who connect with a therapist through the FWCP become patients in the therapist’s own private practice, with an agreement that the worker will not be charged any fees for a predetermined number of sessions. The FWCP’s role is to make locating free psychotherapy as quick and easy as possible for overwhelmed, overworked frontline workers.
The project is now open to all frontline and essential workers, including essential childcare providers and educators, in the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and Yolo. All essential workers are considered “on the front lines” due to the sacrifices and risk their jobs entail.
