Avalon is observing public health directives for Nova Scotia which require the Centre to remain closed until further notice. Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner response to emergency rooms is unaffected by this closure. Anyone who has experienced a sexual assault in the past 7 days can speak with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner at 902-425-0122 or proceed to Emergency for treatment and/or forensic evidence collection. Other staff are working from home, supporting current clients, and preparing for further adjustments to service as developing circumstances dictate. We will continue to share updates about our plans, services and operations. We are checking messages on Avalon voice mail, 902-422-4240, regularly. Thank you for your patience.
Avalon is temporarily unable to receive new counselling requests. We will be directing all therapeutic counselling service to those on the waitlist until we are able to estimate wait times. All other services are unchanged. Information on the temporary change in counselling service here, resources here.
