Victim Services of Sarnia Lambton is a non-profit charitable organization working in cooperation with community partners to assist victims of crime and tragic circumstance.
How can you help?
Dealing with crisis is something that we all face at some point in our lives. No-one is immune to violence, crime or uncontrollable circumstance. Sudden death, physical abuse, sexual assault, suicide or theft can happen to us/our loved ones at any moment. When it does happen, we can be overwhelmed by shock, grief, sadness, fear, confusion and loss.

Conference Registration Form: When Domestic Violence, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Co-Occur.
Victim Services of Sarnia Lambton is hosting a conference April 21, 2015 for National Victims of Crime Awareness Week. The topic this year will bring attention to Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Domestic Violence as they co-occur. Our keynote speaker this year is Deborah Sinclair MSW, RSW, PhD(c), as well as a panel of local service providers.
The conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Sarnia and will focus on creating a collaborative community response to the unique needs of victims of domestic violence who also have mental health and substance use problems. This is a demanding and complex issue for service providers, survivors, their families and the community to understand. Together, we can gain insight and build a more holistic response to survivors of complex trauma and to those who bear witness to their struggles. This conference is directed towards service providers, counsellors, social workers, children’s advocates, victim services volunteers, justice partners, police and anyone working in a supportive role with women and children.
Ticket Prices are $60.00, and $25.00 for Victim Services of Sarnia Lambton volunteers. Please register by April 3rd- Limited Seating. Post-dated cheques dated for April 1st will be accepted from agencies. Please see the attached poster and registration form.
