Circles of Care, as a Joint Commission accredited organization, continues to play a major role in the provision of behavioral health services to Brevard residents, especially those with severe and persistent mental illnesses and those who are medically indigent. The first major role is our crisis stabilization, hospital and detoxification services which are part of the community safety network working closely with law enforcement and Hospital Emergency Rooms providing behavioral health crisis stabilization and Baker Act involuntary examinations across all age ranges.
The second major role is providing outpatient services in four clinics across the County prioritizing those discharged from an inpatient service.
The third major role in the community is unique and that is providing supervised housing and treatment support for individuals with severe and persistent behavioral health problems which provides a better quality of life for these individuals. We are able to provide this service in both Central and South parts of the County.
My sincere appreciation is extended to our volunteer Board of Directors, administrative staff, employees and others in the community who make the work of CIRCLES OF CARE possible. I invite you to look over our website for more details. Circles of Care has adapted to the changes and challenges in behavioral health programming serving Brevard County over the last six decades and I am confident we will do so together as we move forward.
