Homewood Health Centre's Program for Traumatic Stress Recovery


Program for Traumatic Stress Recovery

Childhood abuse. Workplace accidents. Military Trauma. Violence and crime. Sudden loss or destruction. Healing from such traumatic events requires courage, strength, and perseverance. Survivors of trauma must learn to cope with painful memories, a sense of isolation, and feelings of shame, guilt, and fear. Many also experience symptoms of depression or anxiety and may suffer from addiction.

Homewood Health Centre's Program for Traumatic Stress Recovery (PTSR) is the only in-patient program of its kind in Canada. This program helps people recover from the after-effects of trauma.

SAFE in Canada


S.A.F.E. in Canada exists to reduce the burden of suffering caused by self-injury. It does so directly by working with those who self-injure, and indirectly by helping their families, their friends and the professionals who care for them.

Although we can offer information, hope and support, please do not depend on this website instead of seeking professional care.

some reading you can do on the legal system:


"This guide provides information about each step of the criminal process, from the option of reporting a sexual assault to the police, through sentencing, to appeals of a trial verdict. This guide does not pretend to advise women about whether they should report sexual assault or enter the system. What if does hope to do is provide some idea of the hazards and hurdles that will be experienced at each and every step . . ."

Thanks for posting these resources. I ended up using the sexual assault phone number located in the front of my phone book for my area. I ended up with free couselling for approximately two years or more. I just finished and can go back when I want for some follow up or support.

It was really hard to reach out at first because then someone else knew. It really does get easier. Especially once you've released that anger, bitterness and resentment.

thanks again

I came across this site the other day http://littlewarriors.ca/

They educate groups about sexual violence and their goal is to open a treatment facility for young children who have experienced abuse. The focus is to address mental health issues resulting from abuse. It also includes a listing of resources by region throughout Canada.
