Description

Mercy Family Center, a multidisciplinary outpatient mental health clinic for children, adolescents, and their families, opened its doors on October 5, 1992 on a budget of $60, 000 and a staff of three. As Sr. Sarah so accurately recognized, there was a tremendous need for quality mental health services in the New Orleans area and Mercy Family Center quickly surpassed its goal of serving 200-300 families per year.
From the very beginning, Mercy Family Center provided quality assessment and intervention services that are accessible to people of all income levels. The staff recognized that the individual is part of the larger framework of family, neighborhood, school and community.
As a result, both individual and family goals are addressed within these overlapping systems. Treatment approaches emphasize behavior change, problem-solving and promotion of self-esteem for the individual and the family.


Company description
In 1995, psychiatrist Mark Sands joined the staff at Mercy Family Center, enabling the program to begin providing medication management and psychopharmacology services. In 1998, an additional clinic was opened in Mandeville, LA in order to better serve the state’s fastest growing community, St. Tammany Parish. In 2004, Mercy Family Center opened a Mercy Learning Center, Mandeville, in order to better serve children identified with learning style differences. In 2008, a third Mercy Family Center location was opened in Algiers.

The same spirit of innovation and compassion that inspired Sr. Sarah to begin Mercy Family Center continues today and has been aptly expressed in our response to the immediate and increasing need for mental health services in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Project Fleur-de-lis™, designed by Douglas W. Walker, Ph.D. is an intermediate and long-term school-based mental health service model for children who have been exposed to traumatic events as a result of natural and man-made disasters. Project Fleur-de-lis™ is currently being implemented within numerous schools throughout the greater New Orleans area.

Today, Mercy Family Center has three locations, over 20 full-time employees, serves nearly 3, 000 families per year, and is recognized as the premier provider of children’s mental health services in the greater New Orleans area. In fiscal year 2006-07, we delivered nearly $400, 000 in “Mercy Care” (charity care) services and are positioned as a major factor in the post-Katrina recovery of New Orleans though Project Fleur-de-lis™. We look forward to continuing to fulfill the mission and ministry of the Sisters of Mercy in the greater New Orleans area.
