The South County Mental Health Center (SCMHC) is a private, non-profit corporation chartered by the State of Florida in 1974. Since its creation in 1974, SCMHC has brought quality mental health and substance abuse care to our communities in a manner which enhances and preserves human dignity. Through local support, guidance and cooperation, the Center has been able to achieve its primary purpose of serving people of all ages and incomes.
In the world of healthcare, the vast and sometimes staggering dimensions of the physical health service delivery system often completely eclipse the area of behavioral health.
South County Mental Health Center, through its Board of governance, vision and mission statements, and dedicated staff and volunteers, has worked hard to educate through example. Our belief is to operate as a working model of how a community mental health center should function.
We believe that quality care is only possible when sound clinical practices are melded with compassion and sensitivity. The staff at South County Mental Health Center functions with this concept in mind. Our continuous quality improvement program and Joint Commission accreditation are visible symbols to this commitment.
SCMHC is a not-for-profit charitable corporation governed by a Board of Directors who are volunteers from the community.
Center programs are licensed by the State of Florida.
SCMHC is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
