- MPSS Client  

"I want to thank ARMHS for encouraging me to be where I am today. Through implementing life skills in my daily life, I am now clean and sober, I am no longer homeless and I now live in a supportive-independent housing program that offers supportive meetings, a safe place for me to use my skills for the greater good of the residents, and a place for me to explore my interests and strengths. I am in the process of taking my GED exam and am confident that I will pass. I want to thank my ARMHS worker for helping me get to the place that I am today. I am now a leading figure in my supportive housing program, I have been a member of my church for a year, I have been able to maintain my sobriety, I maintain my relationship with my psychiatrist and therapist and that promotes hope and positive expectations. Furthermore, I now have my own column in the housing program’s monthly newsletter in which I discuss events in the community to inspire cohesion and healthy life choices that will support members in being successful living in the program. I would highly recommend ARMHS because it was helpful in helping me apply life skills and setting and reaching my goals. I believe in myself and that I can achieve anything I put my mind to."

From Our Employees

 “Within Metro Psychology Support Services, I have found a community in which I flourish on so many levels. Dona Mathews has supported (and funded!) my creativity and passion for inventing handouts and activities to address common problems I encounter with clients. I have coworkers and supervisors who understand where I’m coming from if I’m having a difficult day, and who celebrate with me for all the little victories along the way. And, the most important aspect of the job for me, I’ve gotten the opportunity to work with so many awesome clients who have shown me what it looks like to live with courage, joy, love, and determination in the face of unbelievable adversity. In working with them, I have learned so many valuable lessons about my mental and physical health, about effective communication, about healthy emotion regulation, about living with hope, and so much more.

I have worked at Metro for almost three years, and I am so grateful for the experience I’ve had at Metro Psychology. I have profound respect for Dona Mathews and the company that she built.”

"It has truly been an honor representing MPSS in the community as their diagnostician for the past three years. I feel confident performing the initial assessments knowing that the clients will be assigned to one of our highly competent and dedicated ARMHS practitioners. I also enjoy performing the reassessments as I can see how the clients have progressed since they started with our service. I am grateful not only for the rewarding connections with the clients themselves but also for the strong support from my supervisors, office staff, and practitioners in helping me develop my skills as a mental health professional. Working at MPSS has been the most positive experience in my career."
