Wellness at Mercy
Mercy’s new Wellness Program was created during the 2017-18 school year to meet the overall well-being of the entire school community. The program will encompass holistic education and support to students, families, and staff, as well as mental health counseling and resources for additional support and learning.
The Wellness Program will continually strive to assess school needs and implement research-based socio-emotional learning into the curriculum and the whole school environment. The Wellness Director works in collaboration with counselors, educators, and other faculty to develop healthy and sustainable practices throughout the school, and to incorporate student-driven health and wellness initiatives into life at Mercy.
The Wellness Center is a safe, welcoming space designed for students and faculty to access the program’s offerings. The Center is an “offline/unplugged” zone where students have the opportunity to leave phones at the door in order to connect with themselves and each other more mindfully.
