Sunshine Coast Health Centre and Georgia Strait Women's Clinic are registered B Corp, licensed, and accredited mental health facilities... that use an evidence-based, non-12-step, meaning-centred, strengths-based approach that interconnects all our services and therapies including medical withdrawal, anger management, rTMS, trauma therapy, and PTSD treatments.
While other centres focus on abstinence or symptom reduction, we focus on helping our clients solve the underlying issues driving trauma, addictive behaviour, or mental health suffering. This allows all clients to get the full, transformative benefit of our program.
Working men and women are given the opportunity to explore their drinking or drug use, mental health, and/or trauma while also building camaraderie with other men and women experiencing similar issues in gender-specific environments. This shared experience has been shown to provide the most therapeutic value. Even though the issues are the "same", how each gender deals with them are dramatically different, meaning the treatments and therapies need to be as well.
CIMVHR engages academia, military, Veterans, government and industry in the effort to advance military and Veteran health research. This work is showcased each year, when thought leaders from these sectors gather at our Forum to exchange ideas, share insight, learn and collaborate.
Sponsors of CIMVHR Forum are publicly demonstrating their support for health research that benefits our military personnel, Veterans, public safety personnel and their families.
