Canadian Mental Health Association - Nova Scotia Division
Who: Any person from the age of 0-100+, services offered include individual assessment and individual and group intervention. Frequency and length of services is determined by client need and diagnosis. Treatment planning after assessment may include referral out to other services in the community as best service or in conjunction with services offered on site.
Services specific to Sexual Violence: Any clients identified as having experienced a recent sexual assault are prioritized for assessment and are offered services once a referral has been received.
We note that many clients are not referred for that reason but many of our female clients have experienced sexual violence and the trauma is underlying their presenting concerns for therapy.
Safety risk and vulnerabilities discussions are part of intervention where identified as a preventative measure (i.e., women with addiction issues, vulnerable teens, etc.)
