Support services that help people heal in mind, body and spirit

Help a person heal from the wounds that can't be seen

With support from donors, people can get services to overcome mental health conditions

Mental health challenges or addiction affect a person's entire wellbeing, both physically and emotionally. Mercy Health St. Rita's Medical Center depends on donations to help provide behavioral health programs and comforting patient care spaces that people depend on.

Donations to the Sisters of Mercy Legacy Fund provide targeted solutions to the most pressing health needs—often for mental health and addiction treatment services—that arise here in our community. Your donation helps people get tools and support to prioritize their good health, improve their mental wellbeing and have a better quality of life.

Some of the resources you help provide when you give to the Sisters of Mercy Legacy Fund include:

  • Behavioral Health center and program enhancements
  • Addiction prevention, education, community outreach and treatment options
  • Opiate Withdrawal and Linkage program connects patients who complete inpatient detox to services for continued treatment and recovery
  • Access to health care services for people in financial need or without insurance
  • Community health coordinator at St. Rita's
  • Spiritual care, chapels and meditation areas
