CMHA Middlesex

CMHA Middlesex proudly offers a continuum of community-based mental health mental health supports for individuals 16 and older across London, Strathroy, Exeter and Goderich.

My Sisters’ Place is a program of CMHA Middlesex and is many things to the hundred plus women who walk through its doors each day. It is safety. It is service. It is sisterhood.

While women who access My Sisters’ Place range in age from 16 – 70 and come from diverse backgrounds, they do share some common barriers to well-being. Most have experienced abuse, trauma and isolation. Many are homeless, are at risk of homelessness, or are street involved. More than 80% have mental health issues. Their lives are complicated by poverty, health concerns and addiction.

All are striving to gain control of their lives and realize their potential.
