Sexual Assault & Violence

A new health unit to serve our communities better – We are working to update the information on this page to reflect our new organization as Southwestern Public Health. Currently this information reflects Elgin St. Thomas area only. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Southwestern Public Health is a safe space for victims of sexual assault to come to for support.  We offer information on different sexual assault support centres and can assist you with transportation to and from these support centres if needed. Testing for all sexually transmitted infections is also available at the sexual health clinic as well as the morning after pill
