What are examples of problems that are beyond the scope of direct care services?

Mercy Home cannot admit young people who:

  • Have psychoses
  • Have perpetuated sexual or physical abuse
  • Are actively suicidal
  • Are currently self-mutilating
  • Are pregnant
  • Are fire-setting
  • Have a primary diagnosis of substance abuse
  • Have a profound leaning disorder or have IQ under 80
  • Have severe behavior or emotional disorders

But again, we can help kids like these by offering them a referral to the most appropriate agency to meet their specific challenges.
