|Description & Services|
|Alternate Name||Chantel's Place|
|Description||The Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Services located at Trillium Health Centre are regional programs. Clients are seen from across the Peel Region. Individuals cared for include:
*Women and men 12 years of age or older who have been sexually assaulted within the last 72 hours
*Women 16 years of age or older who have incurred recent injuries as a result of domestic violence
*Children under the age of 12 who have been sexually abused or assaulted (see Paediatric Sexual Assault Services for more information on this topic)
Clients may access this 24-hour, 7-day a week service through our Emergency Department. A specially trained nurse provides one-on-one care including assessment, treatment, documentation of injuries (may include photographing), safety planning, emotional support and information concerning medical, legal and counselling options. This process takes place in the safety and security of a private unit separate from the Emergency Department called Chantel's Place.
Follow-up medical and social work services are available to all patients.
Sexual Assault Survivors
Outpatient counselling by qualified and registered social workers with an expertise in sexual assault is available free of charge to:
survivors of recent sexual assault
those supporting a survivor of sexual assault, and
survivors 12 years of age or older who have experienced a peer assault in the past.
Services are available in Mississauga or Brampton.
Domestic Violence Survivors
A formal relationship with Interim Place has been established.
A Transitional Support Program is available to meet with women to provide support and information on a variety of issues including housing, employment services, income support, job training, immigration, legal services and referrals to long-term counselling.
As a community-based service, we also provide client advocacy, public and professional training, education and prevention strategies such as Wen-Do courses. In partnership with other community agencies, we work towards providing survivors with a seamless service by our active membership on two coordinating committees - the Peel Committee on Sexual Assault and the Peel Committee Against Woman Abuse.
