What is the HEALTH clinic?

What is the HEALTH clinic?

H.E.A.L.T.H is a clinic designed specifically to promote trauma - informed health care through a patient - centered framework and provide you with opportunities for health promotion.

We handle your day-to-day wellness needs and we include opportunities for health prevention.  We are familiar with and acknowledge how trauma such as sexual violence, exploitation and childhood adversity can impact your life.  

With the client's permission , we partner with local and regional social service providers to assist those affected by violence in rebuilding their lives.
