The Prince Albert Sexual Assault Centre operates out of the Mobile Crisis office. The Centre provides confidential counselling for survivors and the family of survivors. 

Sexual assault is a crime of violence, power and control, for which the offender alone is responsible. Victims do NOT bring on the assault through dress, behaviour or physical location. Victims can be anyone - female, male, adult or child. Everyone is affected by sexual assault. We believe and support the victim. It is NOT your fault. 

Sexual assault workers provide information, support, advocacy, referrals and both short and long term couselling. The sexual assault work will, upon request by the client, go with the client to the police station, hospital and courts.

We serve our community while supporting and advocating for all survivors of sexual assault and abuse. We welcome any survivor of sexual assault and work to support you in what ever capacity we can.

 

You are not alone. We can help.

Crisis Workers provide crisis intervention and support if you or someone you know is a victim of sexual assault. Our trained and professional Crisis Workers are available to offer supportive listening and to accompany survivors to the hospital. After initial contact, with your approval, your case will be referred to our Sexual Assault Worker for follow-up. 

If you are a victim of sexual assault, it is important that you:

  • Tell someone immediately or at the first reasonable opportunity;

  • Preserve the evidence: do not wash, douche or change your appearance in any way until you have had a medical examination. Save anything that was involved. It may be kept as evidence;

  • Seek medical attention, even if you do not want to report the sexual assault to police. Get tested for STIs, STDs and seek treatment for any physical injury;

  • Call police or the Mobile Crisis Unit as soon as possible if you choose to report the crime to police.

  • Call us at any stage, regardless of whether or not you want to report. It helps to talk and we will support you, whatever decision you make;

  • If the sexual assault or abuse was perpetrated against a child under the age of 16, you have a duty to report, as required by law. Contact local police, Ministry of Social Services and or local Child and Family Services 

We provide free, confidential counselling for victims and the family of victims.

What you can expect from a counselling session

  • You have the right to privacy. The information you share will be confidential. All files are kept in a locked filing cabinet. They are stored for a period of seven years and then destroyed. 

  • You have the right to know what is written about you and you can discuss your file with your counsellor at any time.

  • Your counsellor may consult with other professionals or other councellors in order to assist you in the best way possible. No identifying information will be released during these professional consultations without your written consent.

  • Couselling sessions are normally 60 minutes in length.

  • Information about you will not be shared outside the agency except with your written permission.

  • The law requires that information be shared without your consent when your counsellor has reason to believe:

    • a life is in danger​

    • a child is in need of protection (under 16 years of age)

    • when a subpoena has been ordered

  • At your first session your counsellor will review a Confidentiality Agreement with you and request that you sign it as an indictor that you understand the legal parameters of confidentiality. This agreement will then be placed on your file.
