Maryvale has opened a satellite office in Leamington at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre.

The office, known as the Abraham Orthodontics Community Youth Room, will enable youth from Leamington, ages 13 to 18, to access mental health services in their home community.

“On behalf of Maryvale, and specifically the youth and families we serve from the Leamington area, I would like to thank the partners for their commitment to youth needing mental health services by enabling us to bring our services to Leamington. Typically, they would have to travel to the Maryvale campus in Windsor to access these critical services,” said Jenny Letink, Executive Director at Maryvale. “I am hoping that we can replicate this collaborative partnership in other municipalities across the County of Essex”.

This new satellite office represents a collaborative partnership between the Municipality of Leamington, Abraham Orthodontics and Maryvale.

“We are beyond thrilled to have the Community Youth Room open and utilized by Maryvale to deliver services desperately needed by our youth,” says Christen Abraham, community outreach coordinator and co-founder of Abraham Orthodontics. “We always seek ways to support children in our community beyond their smiles and are honoured to be a small part of this effort.”

A clinically trained therapist will provide counselling for youth four days per week at this new satellite office and a Family Navigation Worker will attend one day per week to help underserved youth and their families connect and navigate the local mental health and addictions system.
