Welcome to the webpage of
Merrily Manthey.  
Merrily has devoted more than 30 years as an educator and therapist, consultant and activist for the advancement of human potential. She has been honored for her ground-breaking leadership in the creation of the landmark King County Natural Medicine Clinic, the first publicly funded natural medicine primary care clinic in the United States. She is the initiator of the City of Kent, Washington, Natural Medicine Project, which is bringing national and international attention to Kent, The Wellness Capital of America.

A Seattle native and longtime stress management consultant, she lectures, both nationally and internationally, and produces educational materials such as the award winning video, "A Message of Hope"; and the "Natural Child's Guide to Parenting" series.

"A Message of Hope" documents the power of natural medicine to assist in achieving optimum mental health.
"A Message of Hope" has stimulated landmark legislation that opens the door for new treatment protocols and outcomes measures. Superman blockbuster star Margot Kidder personally supported the legislation that asks for accountability and treatment outcome assessment for patients in King County (Washington State) mental health system.


Other videos currently planned and in production cover natural medicine for chronic conditions, marriage, and longevity.

Merrily Manthey may be the only person in the US who, at the same time, served on the boards of a mainstream hospital and medical center AND the leading natural medicine training university.

bulletShe  served two terms for a total of six years on the Board of Trustees of Bastyr
University, the only fully-accredited multi-disciplinary academic training institution
for natural medical practitioners in the U.S.

She served 10 years as a member of the Board of Trustees for 370 bed Harborview
Medical Center in Seattle, a Level I Trauma Center and teaching hospital with 50+
outpatient clinics.


Merrily also served on the King County Natural Medicine Clinic Advisory Board for
the initial two-year highly successful demonstration project at the Kent
Community Health Center, in Kent, Washington.

She has compiled and written the "Natural Medicine Handbook for People Over 50," which provides scientific references from mainstream medical journals on natural medical treatments for common chronic conditions. The Handbook, now in its second printing, has been translated into Chinese.
