I came to Meriter Hospital when I was broken. My son had died three years ago, I was urged to move into a group home, I lost a 17 year relationship because we decided to be friends and I had to move to a two bedroom apartment from Janesville to Madison. I had more responsibilities than I could handle, so I 'broke down' and put myself into the Psychiatric Ward at Meriter Hospital, and I'm so glad I did! The doctors were fabulous, as were the nurses and support staff! The other patients were so helpful and inspirational, so that I felt stronger each day to meet my challenges head-on and would not give up.
Thank you, Meriter. It was my first time here and you helped me heal. Bless you all!
