MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX – Mosaics of Mercy, Montgomery County, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Resource Database launched on December 19, 2022. The community can access the database through the website, www.mosaicsofmercy.com. In addition, personalized help will be available by calling Mosaics directly from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 346-703-0051.
Mosaics of Mercy developed an “evergreen database” that the community at large can access. The database will contain information on counselors, treatment centers, hospitals, support groups, mental health organizations, educational events, crisis resources, and more. Each resource in the database is vetted through an interview by one of our navigators to ensure accurate information. With this new system, there will be search filters to assist someone in narrowing down information for their specific situation. A unique aspect of Mosaic’s database and services is its completely neutral nature. We do not accept payment or market services for any entity.
