Upcoming FCCMH/FCBH Board Meetings
5/23/2018 to 5/25/2018 EDT
Our hearts are with the students, families, teachers, friends and neighbors whose lives have been affected by the recent tragic events at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. ALL of Florida's community behavioral health centers are available to support those who are grappling with grief and confusion over this incomprehensible tragedy.
We are especially thankful for our colleagues at Henderson Behavioral Healthcare, who did not hesitate in their response to help victims, families and friends cope with the immediate aftermath of the shooting. The professional staff at Henderson Behavioral Healthcare will continue to provide services and support as needed.
We want to thank the leadership of the Senate and the House and Governor Scott for recognizing the importance of access to mental health services by pledging additional resources for mental health services and school safety.
The Florida Council strongly supports efforts to strengthen collaboration between local school systems and local, nationally accredited community mental health centers that provide a full continuum of services for all ages. These collaborations allow community-serving systems with shared priorities to leverage their respective resources to improve the overall health and well-being of students, families and communities.
Florida’s Community Mental Health Centers provide a vital behavioral health safety net for communities. Our centers stand ready to help you.
