Q: I am new to Brandon and I am curious about some of the resources available here.  Is there a place where I can get free birth control?

A: Yes, there is a place in Brandon where you can get free birth control.  It is called the Sexual Health Program.  It is located at 800 Rosser Avenue in the Town Centre.  You can call them at 204-578-2513. The Public Health Nurses there also offer education, support and counseling on:

  •  Sexuality
  •  Decision-making
  •  Disease prevention
  •  Conception
  •  Birth control
  •  Pregnancy testing
  •  Pregnancy options counseling

Also, feel free to drop by the SERC office sometime and check out the resources we have to offer. Our office is located at 161 8th street and we have lots of information on anything to do with sexuality. We also have free condoms and goodies for people stopping in. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook!
