Canada’s Leader in Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Comes to Vancouver Island in 2018
Homewood Ravensview is a world-class centre for those seeking immediate treatment for mental health, trauma, addiction and concurrent conditions.
World-class Clinical Treatment
Homewood Health is proud to introduce its newest inpatient treatment centre – Homewood Ravensview, located on the Saanich Peninsula on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Homewood Ravensview is a world-class centre for those seeking immediate treatment for mental health, addiction and concurrent conditions. Medically-led, evidence-based programs at Ravensview are provided by an expert team of medical and clinical professionals including psychiatrists, addiction medicine physicians, psychologists, nurses and specialized therapists.
Honouring Culture and History
Homewood Ravensview is located atop a stunning mountain top surrounded by trees and 180 degree view of the ocean. This location is very significant in the history and culture of the Pauquachin First Nation.
For thousands of years, local elders have passed down the story of the Great Flood in the region and the ancestors who survived it. During the flood, thought to have occurred over 10,000 years ago, ȽÁU,WELṈEW̱ was where the ancestors tied their boats to an arbutus tree atop the mountain. After many days, a raven brought a symbol of hope - a twig - to the stranded people, showing that the flood had ended. When the survivors came down from the mountain, they were named WSÁNEĆ or the emerging people.
Here at Homewood, we were inspired by this story as well as the symbolic importance of the mountain. The name Homewood Ravensview draws on the history of the mountain as a place of refuge and we are committed to honouring this location and the community with our mission to help and bring hope to people in need.
Collaboration with Local Talent
Homewood worked with well-known local artist Chris Paul of the Tsartlip Nation, who designed the illustration seen in the logo. Moved by the story of the mountain and the spectacular natural surroundings of Homewood Ravensview, Paul says the design of the logo became obvious. The resulting illustration ties directly back to the story of the great flood – featuring rising water, the mountain, and the raven.
Homewood Sponsors Ground-breaking First Nations Women's Conference in Victoria
To celebrate the countdown to opening day at the new Ravensview treatment centre, Homewood Health co-sponsored a three-day conference on women’s wellness together with the Pauquachin First Nation and the First Nations Health Authority on March 27-29, 2018.
Titled Tsitsulh Suse’ (Rise Up!), the conference gathered Indigenous women from across Vancouver Island that celebrates the hopes, dreams, strengths and triumphs of women. Participants in this conference gained a better understanding of wellness education and its prominent role in creating strong and healthy communities.
Homewood Health had the honour of presenting four sessions focused on mental health and wellness on Wednesday, March 28th:
- The Science of Happiness
- Change How You Think Through Responsible Optimism
- The Wonders of Mindfulness
- The Healing Power of Creativity
