VICCIR provides counselling and mental health services to promote the well-being of refugees and immigrants, assist them on their healing journey and promote their integration into our multicultural communities. VICCIR is the only provider of psychological assistance to immigrants and refugees on Vancouver Island who suffer from the effects of trauma to the extent that daily living is compromised. Any immigrant or refugee who is able to access our centre is eligible for service from an experienced registered clinical counsellor who has received additional training in intercultural trauma treatment. VICCIR offers counselling to individuals, couples, children and youth and also works intergenerationally with whole families. VICCIR has a roster of trained interpreters who speak more than six languages and are available when the client does not speak English.
