WE’RE HERE TO HELP
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Each year, hundreds of people turn to our Domestic Violence Services for support. If your spouse, partner or someone in your family has been abusive, we are here to help.
Our staff can offer emotional support, provide information, assist with safety planning, and help put you in touch with other supports you may need.
All Domestic Violence Services are free of charge and confidential.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SERVICES
We offer quick access to single-session and/or brief therapy for individuals seeking counselling relating to domestic violence.
Our services are prioritized for individuals who do not have access to workplace benefits, who live on a fixed or low income, and who otherwise may experience long waits for publicly funded services.
Services are provided by professional counsellors who hold education in the counselling and mental health field and who are licensed with a professional regulatory body to provide this service.
If your situation is urgent, or you feel at risk, please contact Mobile Crisis Services 306.757.0127 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
