“I love the nonjudgmental atmosphere of the MPRC.”
–Scott C.

Merrifield has been busy this month! It’s been fun to hear the many answers to the question, ” what’s at the end of your rainbow?” Peers had fun displaying their answers on shamrocks and pots of gold!
It’s been amazingly rewarding for staff to see our peers reaching out and supporting each other. Pictured here, a peer is teaching another peer how to make friendship bracelets to help during times of heightened anxiety. They even sent some string home with him to practice!
One of our favorite groups is Artful Expressions. Our center is colorful with the finished projects!
This month our staff were particularly proud to help a peer who needed new work boots to be able to work. He was able to purchase the boots and keep his job!
