Marymound has two secure living units on its premises in Winnipeg, each providing a home-like, nurturing environment for up to eight girls. A young person who behaves in a manner that puts herself at risk can benefit from the structured program, with an emphasis on promoting healthy, age-appropriate activities and interaction.

secure livingThe setting of each unit is modern, well-equipped and provides a therapeutic milieu that includes counseling, support and psychiatric consultation. Staff provide extensive evening recreation programming, including community activities as treatment progresses – and all young people residing in Marymound secure units attend Marymound School.

The young people who come to us are often struggling to overcome multiple challenges including abuse, family breakdown, addiction, mental health issues and learning disabilities. Marymound staff is experienced and skilled at working with young people with high needs and who require an exceptional level of care.

We strive to offer the best chance for success to young people needing treatment-based care. With our wide range of placement options, youth can move on to other Marymound programs as their development progresses.
