Behavioral Health Services
Our behavioral health services are designed to help restore balance in the lives of individuals and families living with a mental illness. We provide screenings, consultations, care coordination, and linkage to our strategic partners and we also offer outreach and educational activities to the public with one goal in mind – to help create an environment in which even the least fortunate in society can have a chance at a normal life.
The following is a brief description of each of the behavioral health services that Guardian Behavioral Health Foundation provides:
Screening & Medication Assistance: In this individualized meeting, our staff meets with individuals and families to discuss mental illness history, current needs, and any obstacles to services including financial constraints. The goal is to determine an appropriate plan of action to assist the individual and family seeking services.
Behavioral Health Services – Outreach & Education
At Guardian Behavioral Health Foundation, we find that through education the whole community grows. The individuals and families are more open to services because they are more informed, and the strategic partners and contributors benefit by staying up to date on medical advances, evidence based practices and treatment options. We offer educational conferences and courses for professionals and we offer support groups for families and the community. Learn more

Decriminalization of Mental Illness
In a state ranked 49th for mental health funding, with one of the largest uninsured populations, and an ever increasing number of incarcerated people, Florida is in desperate need of mental health care reform. Today, the three facilities that hold the highest number of individuals with mental illnesses are not psychiatric hospitals, but jails. The criminal justice system has become the “de facto” mental health care system, simply because there are so many persons with psychiatric disabilities who are not receiving treatment. Learn more.
