24/7 Emergency line
415 170 64 88
One of the goals of the ELECT Center is:
No one with a mental or legal problem related to violence feels alone and that everyone has access to a comprehensive model of the services they need.
We strongly believe in everyone’s right to have good mental health, have a life free of violence, and legal representation. We know that it is sometimes difficult to find a lawyer or psychologist whose service is open or low cost. You can come to us so that the psychologists and lawyers on our team can assist you.
It can happen to anyone, regardless of their nationality, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Our priority is to keep everyone, particularly women and children, out of harm’s way.
We keep all our phone calls, conversations, and everything discussed during consultations confidential.
