Welcome

South Florida Behavioral Health Network is committed to improving the lives of people with mental disorders and addiction problems.

Our goal is to develop, implement and refine a coordinated system of behavioral health care within the community that enhances prevention, treatment and recovery services for those at risk of or who are suffering from mental health and substance abuse problems.

Our Role

As a network system of care, we oversee funding designated by the state of Florida to help individuals in need of behavioral health care. Our delivery system is performance-driven, cost-effective and fiscally responsible.

We ensure care is delivered to:

  • People who need treatment rather than incarceration
  • Teens troubled by alcohol or substance abuse or co-occurring
  • Individuals suffering from mental health disorders
  • Families in need of support and behavioral health services
  • War veterans who have behavioral health problems or concerns

Our Goal

The South Florida Behavioral Health Network seeks to develop a system of care that provides the best access to care and strive for excellence in behavioral health service delivery.
