Mercy's Story: 'From Homelessness to University'

My name is Mercy, I'm from Nigeria, West Africa.

I am a trained Nurse/Midwife and worked 13 years in the hospital before travelling abroad.

I became homeless in 2013 due to sexual harassment by my landlord, and was evicted.

I lost everything; my documents and passport were all stolen on the street.

I was taken to a mental Institution where they gave me treatment, and I lost a lot of weight, and couldn’t recover.

My GP thought it might be Cancer, they did blood tests and MRI Scan’s at Kings College but all came back negative. I continued to lose weight and I became isolated, I did not like myself at all. I was constantly thinking I will die, I was depressed.

I was referred to Mosaic Clubhouse in 2015 by my care coordinator and was received with love and given a warm welcome. Ade and Jonathan (staff) were my first contact. They did everything to make sure I recovered and have my life back. Then later I met all the other dedicated Staff who accepted me and did all their best to support me.

The Manager, Beverley Randall is exceptional. Thank you so much for your dedication, motivation, support and for making sure people who have contact with Mosaic Clubhouse have their self-worth back.

Today, I am studying a Health Care Management degree at University. I want to have a voice in the area of mental health, to make sure people like me are accepted into society and not isolated.

No matter the situation and challenges you are facing, be positive; believe in yourself that everything is going to be OK.

From the depth of my heart, I say thank you to all the dedicated staff and members of Mosaic Clubhouse for your support and love.

May God richly bless you all!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

"From the depth of my heart, I say thank you"
