PEI Rape & Sexual Assault Centre
helping


The Prince Edward Island Rape and Sexual Assault Centre is a  non-profit, government funded organization that provides services to adult (women and men) and youth (over age 16) survivors of recent or historic sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse  across Prince Edward Island. Our services include individual therapy, support and information. We also manage a group program for male survivors.  

The goal of the PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre (PEIRSAC) is to support and advocate for survivors of sexual assault and abuse in their healing and to ensure that all residents of PEI are safe from sexual violence. To achieve this, we work collaboratively with, and in ways that empower, individuals and organizations.

Wait List
We currently have a wait list for counselling sessions addressing historical sexual abuse and/or past sexual assault. If you have experienced a sexual assault recently, however, you will not have to wait, and we will see you as soon as possible. The length of the wait list varies, and it is not possible to predict accurately how long the wait might be. We know it takes courage to ask for help, and it can feel discouraging to be asked to wait.

While waiting, we encourage anyone seeking more immediate support to check out other resources that might be available, such as an E.A.P. or personal benefit program.  Persons over age 16 can also meet with a community mental health counsellor with no appointment. Here is information about the walk in clinics:
Charlottetown - McGill Centre - Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm- 5 pm
                                      Richmond Centre - Tuesdays and Thursdays 11 am  - 7 pm 
Summerside, at the PCH - Monday and Wednesday 9 am - 5 pm


You can find details about support groups offered at Canadian Mental Health Association of PEI
