City Spirit

This facility is dedicated to providing medical, legal and social services to the mentally ill, homeless, and drug addicts. Conceived as a ‘first contact’ centre, clients are directed either to the hospital or to CUMI (Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill) which offers occupational therapy and a small night shelter.

City Spirit provides general mental health services, drug abuse assessment and treatment, home visitation (done by the Poor Relief Department), advocacy and family support and therapy. Two meals a day and bathing facilities are provided. A resource centre, to be open to the public, is planned; a television and VCR will allow for education of both the public and clientele. City Spirit is located at 2 Lawrence Lane (corner of Church & Orange Streets) and can be contacted at 952-5500-2.
