Review for Mercy Ministries of America, Inc., Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent eleven years in the mental health system receiving treatment in various hospitals and facilities for Abuse, Depression, PTSD, Dissociation, self-harm, suicidality, and anorexia. At the end of my rope, I found Mercy Ministries. I did not know what to expect. I found a loving home where I was safe to sort out the traumas of my past, receive great counsel and guidance, and most importantly, I was given the opportunity to find a real relationship with God. The home was beautiful, modern, clean, and non-institutional. The staff were compassionate and loving, well educated, and dedicated to their work. I was challenged physically, spiritually, and emotionally, but when I graduated from Mercy Ministries after approximately six months, I knew the Truth about myself and God. I was and still am free from depression, self-harm, eating disorders, and PTSD symptoms. Life is an ongoing learning adventure, but Mercy was instrumental in setting me on the right course with the One who changes everything. I have hope for a future outside of what happened to me in the past, and I'm so grateful.
