Salvus Clinic is recognized provincially as a leader in peer-support work and we are very proud to work closely with our Peer Support Specialists.
Our last training was held in January 2017. Currently those trained are working with mentors in the community and are excited to be able to give back to the community. We would like to thank WA Action for providing funding to help us train the peers.
Salvus Clinic started its transgender clinic in the summer of 2013 to provide services to transgendered individuals. Salvus Clinic staff provide support to those without a family physician who may need counselling, hormone management, and referrals. The clinic hosts UBU, a transgender support and action group designed to help our transgender community comfortably and confidently transition and integrate into society.
In partnership with United Way, Salvus Clinic manages two Peer Supportive Housing (PSH) buildings which provide housing with on-site support to tenants who experience issues with mental health and chronic homelessness. Tenants for PSH must be eligible to receive housing under the rules for the Department of Social Development and must agree to pay a portion of the rent and work towards recovery with the staff. Currently Salvus works closely with the Housing Review Assessment Team (HART) to identify individuals with high needs who might benefit from peer supported housing.
