Welcome to Maryvale

Who We Are

Maryvale is a Children’s Mental Health treatment centre where children and teens experiencing very serious emotional and psychological distress can receive therapy and assistance from a team of experts.

Adolescents in Classroom

Our Mission

Maryvale improves the quality of life for youth and families experiencing mental health distress in Windsor/Essex and Chatham/Kent.

Our History

Maryvale began in 1929 when five sisters of the Roman Catholic Order of the Good Shepherd established a home in Windsor for young women and girls in social and spiritual need.

At Maryvale, we help young people and their families who, for a variety of reasons, are in serious emotional or psychological distress and are not doing well emotionally and mentally in their thinking about themselves and others. They may be highly anxious, depressed, suicidal, feeling worthless and hopeless, or they have lost their willingness to care about others. They may be dealing with debilitating learning disabilities.

Some students attend Maryvale during the day for school while others attend for counselling only to sort out some areas of distress they are facing.

We will make every effort to provide services in French . Des services en français sont disponibles.

Bienvenue à Maryvale

À Maryvale, nous aidons les jeunes gens et leur famille qui, pour diverses raisons, traversent une période de détresse émotionnelle ou psychologique et de perturbation affective et mentale en ce qui concerne la perception qu’ils ont d’eux-mêmes et des autres. Ils peuvent être très anxieux, déprimés, suicidaires; se sentir inutiles et sans espoir ou avoir renoncé à toute forme d’empathie envers leur entourage. Ils peuvent être affectés de troubles d’apprentissage débilitants

Certains étudiants fréquentent l’école à Maryvale durant le jour alors que d’autres participent aux programmes parascolaires ou de week-end. D’autres assistent uniquement aux sessions de counseling dans le but de démêler certaines zones conflictuelles auxquelles ils sont confrontés.


June is Pride Month, a time to honour and celebrate the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. We know that there continues to be injustices experienced by this community and that their fight for inclusivity is ongoing. We recognize all that they have achieved and appreciate the richness they bring to our community. For the month of June, Maryvale will fly the Progressive Pride Flag to stand in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

What does 2SLGBTQIA+ mean?

Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and the countless affirmative ways in which people choose to self-identify.

The Progressive Pride Flag was designed by Artist Daniel Quasar in 2018.

Daniel combined both renderings (pictured below) to reimagine and re-design the Progress Pride Flag in 2018. The flags black and brown stripes represent marginalized LBGT communities of colour, community members lost to HIV/AIDS, and those currently living with AIDS. Quasar reshaped the new flag colors into a chevron to represent a need for forward movement.

The Original Multi-Coloured Rainbow Flag was designed by artist Gilbert Baker in 1978 in San Francisco.

The Transgender Pride Flag designed by transgender activist and veteran Monica Helms in 1999.

How to be a Better Ally (TransWellnessOntario):

Allyship must be intersectional – you cannot be a selective ally. Do not act out of guilt. Act out of responsibility.

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you take the side of the oppressor.

Allyship is not self-defined – it is not a term that you can assign to yourself. It is something that you work for every single day.

Allyship is a verb. Make sure you are continually working to be an ally – every day, in every way.
