crisis line support
Crisis Line Counsellors are there to listen to you and provide compassionate and non-judgmental support. These individuals are either staff members or trained volunteers. They are a listening ear if you are struggling and need someone to talk to. They are also there to provide you with information about what to do next if you have been assaulted, how to seek medical care, what is involved with reporting to police and most other questions you might have.
Advocates are also available for friends and family of someone who has been assaulted or abused. They can help you understand what your loved one is going through and how best to respond to their needs.
Our advocates are available to talk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Depending on what you need, advocates are available to provide support over the phone, or accompany you to the hospital and/or police station, and assist you with referrals to medical, legal and other community-based resources and agencies.
If you need to talk, we are hear to listen.
Staff are available to conduct community education workshops, which can be tailored to the specific needs of the group. RSAC has two trained ASASS facilitators who are available to teach 2-day workshops on responding to sexual assault. Please see here for more information about what this training offers.
We provide free, confidential counselling to anyone five years of age and older who has experienced sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, or relationship violence; as well as friends and family who have been impacted by these issues.
Our clinical counsellors are Master's educated and work from a trauma-informed perspective, while providing care in a way that works best for the individual.
In addition to non-judgemental support and clinical counselling, staff are available to provide orientation and accompaniment to the hospital, police and court. Staff can also assist with referrals to other medical, legal and community-based resources.
We offer an extensive resource library in our office and anyone is welcome to borrow the books and information with a small deposit (refundable upon return of the materials).
If you require counselling services, please call 306-522-2777 during office hours and we will arrange a time to see you.
