Mercy Canada’s free-of-charge outpatient services help women ages 13+ who are dealing with mental health and their associated life-controlling issues, such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, physical and sexual abuse, depression, and sex trafficking.
What is the program curriculum?
Our program model, “Choices That Bring Change,” combines biblical principles of healing and unconditional love with best-practice clinical interventions and has been developed from over 3 decades of experience, as outlined in our Freedom Series.
Trained Registered Clinical Counsellors lead clients through the program model, helping them explore issues of faith, forgiveness, family and generational patterns, overcoming abuse and past hurts, and general life principles.
All client programming is tailored to their individual needs, including Christ-centred counselling, discipleship sessions, life skills, and nutrition and wellness planning.
Who can apply to the program?
Mercy Canada is designed for women ages 13+ who want help and are committed to do the work to change their lives. Entry to the program is voluntary – that is, women make their own choice to come to Mercy Canada.
How do you apply for the program?
Mercy Canada’s online application is free and can be completed at any time. If you are serious about getting help and are ready to apply, please click the wellness centre button below. Please note that our Canadian home is temporarily paused and all current applicants will be redirected on our website to our U.S. affilitate.
What happens when a client finishes the program?
In the final stages of a client’s time at Mercy Canada, she has the option to begin the support care services component of the program. This involves meeting with our Support Care Services Coordinators, who help equip her practically in making plans for continued education, improve her resume and interview skills, connect with external services, join a church community, find an accountability partner, goal setting, and more. Upon completion of our wellness centre program, we offer optional aftercare support to all clients up to 6 months.
Is Mercy Canada affiliated with a particular denomination?
Mercy Canada is not directly affiliated with any particular church, denomination, or organization, but is rather an independant Christian organization with staff members from a variety of Christian backgrounds and traditions.
Do I need to be a Christian to enter the program?
No, it is not essential to have a Christian faith to apply for Mercy Canada’s programs. We welcome applications from women of all ages struggling with mental health and their associated life-controlling issues regardless of their personal faith or religious background.
However, we are transparent about the fact that we offer Christ-centred biblically based counselling and discipleship programs.
