Men Vets’ Testimonials
"I came to the Merritt Center as a mentally exhausted, ready to end it all combat veterans. Through the dedicated efforts of Betty Merritt and the Vet Mentors, I was provided the opportunity and the knowledge to move forward in my journey of healing, and my life has been forever changed as I now truly enjoy this blessed life."
"It is a beautiful thing to be part of the healing that occurs at the Vet Retreat Program. The camaraderie and bonding that happened during the Death Arrow Release ceremony were profound. "
Women Vets’ Testimonials
"At the Merritt Center I’ve learned that it is safe to trust, accept, and value myself just the way I am, independent of what I do. I feel my own value more than at any other time in my life."
"The Merritt Center changed my life. When I first came here I had just gotten out of the VA psych ward for attempting suicide. The Merritt Center put me back on track, gave me the courage and energy to deal with my shit and empowered me to find my place and purpose in this world. I am myself again."
