Sherbourne Health

LGBTQ+ Courage Resource

Sherbourne Health

  • Rainbow Health Ontario Conference: held biennially, this program aims to offer education and training to providers who care for LGBTQ2S communities, advocate for public policy change, share information, and consult with service providers and organizations.
  • Mobile Health Bus: provides an entry point to healthcare services for people who often face barriers in accessing traditional health care services and partners with the community with an aim to support individuals in managing their wellbeing. Competing priorities can make it challenging for some individuals to approach standard health care due to a variety of social factors, including stigma. The health bus offers community outreach that provides an important connection between community members and Sherbourne Health to diminish barriers to health services.
  • Acute Respite Care program: a short-term health care unit that provides 24/7 interdisciplinary care to individuals who are homeless, under-housed and/or socially isolated who need a safe place to recuperate from an acute medical condition, illness, injury, or surgery.
