Community Mental Health

A psychologist or counselor from Community Mental Health may not have expertise in working with women (and couples) dealing with vulvo-vaginal pain. They will likely still be helpful in assisting you (and your partner) in improving your coping. You would not have to pay for these services. You will need a referral from your family doctor to obtain services at one of these clinics. For more information, or the clinic nearest you, visit this website.

I felt so isolated and so alone, like it was like me against the world. I just hate to think of a woman in that situation, feeling alone like she can’t turn to anyone, when there are such simple steps to fix the problem.”
