There are two permanent labyrinths at the Southwest Centre for Forensic Mental Health Care – one indoors and one outdoors.
At Southwest Centre for Forensic Mental Health Care (Southwest Centre) in Elgin County, the unique story of every individual is honoured as care practitioners assist in the journey toward recovery. Part of the St. Joseph’s Health Care London family, Southwest Centre is devoted to caring for people with a mental illness who have also come into contact with the criminal justice system.
