We have Volunteer Counselors available for anyone in need of mental health services. Sometimes when our patients have been sick for a long time, and when life has been more than they could handle, they need someone to stand with and help them make a life plan that will help them move forward mentally and emotionally.

If you are a licensed medical professional or dental professional, we can use you for direct patient care in The Mercy Medical Clinic or Mercy Dental Clinic!
