New Local Initiative Assists At-Risk Youth and Families, Drastically Cuts Wait Times for Essential Crisis Support and Clinical Interventions

The Giving Coast

Centerstone has launched a new program to greatly reduce the long waitlist for services to support at-risk youth and their families who face possible out-of-home placement due to a mental health or related complex issues. The new Family Connections program focuses on preemptive support of at-risk youth to potentially divert their need for escalated treatment. The initiative was made possible by a three-year mental well-being grant from the Florida Blue Foundation. The $300,000 grant aims to shorten the family wait times for Centerstone services to under two weeks that previously could be as long as six months, enhancing youth and family services for 120 Sarasota County families.
