Community Health of South Florida Inc. (CHI) knows behavioral health is a delicate issue for all of us. Our behavioral health staff is among the best of the best, backed by intensive training and experience. In addition, we know compassion and understanding are important components to a successful behavioral health treatment. It is an integrated approach that combines behavioral health and medical services to work hand in hand for the patient’s benefit.

Comprehensive services to address all of your needs:

Outpatient Therapy

For Children: CHI offers individual, family, and substance abuse services. Let our licensed therapists assess and diagnose your child. We offer weekly therapy to kids with issues such as school related problems, poor social and coping skills, self esteem issues, severe behavior problems, substance abuse issues and much more. Our outpatient therapy is also offered at some schools in the community to better assist with transportation issues and school settings sessions

For Adults: Our licensed therapists can help you and your family cope with whatever issue is troubling you. From individual, family and substance abuse services we can help treat an issue with a comprehensive approach. Don’t let depression, marital issues or even the most severe psychiatric problems rob you of your well-being. Our staff has decades of experience in a multitude of settings and areas of expertise.

Behavioral Health Care Medical Services provides primary psychiatric care, therapy, and medication administration by a Psychiatrist or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner. Medical services are designed to improve the functioning or prevent further deterioration of people with mental health or substance abuse problems, including psychiatric mental status assessment. For adults with mental illness, medical services are usually provided on a regular schedule, with arrangements for non-scheduled visits during times of increased stress or crisis.

Case Management – Case management is one of the many services available to adults and children enrolled in behavioral health services at CHI. The case management services team has two main objectives: advocacy and linkage to services. Patients who are enrolled in case management are often times in the process of overcoming mental health or substance abuse problems and are in need of an advocate to assist them in their day to day lives. Case management can help patients with a number of needs such as: housing, vocational, benefits reinstatement, medical, mental health, medication management, linkage to community resources and more. The goal is to help patients become independent and self-sufficient in the community. Case management also assists with getting social security disability insurance.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) services are available to patients at CHI who are working to manage mental illness, and reintegrate into the community. PSR focuses on several areas including: medication use and compliance, independent living, social skills training, housing, vocational and employment rehabilitation, social support and network enhancement, structured activities, symptom management, treatment options, money management, maintenance of living environment and assimilation into the community. PSR services are commonly utilized for patients who are coming out of crisis events. However, services are available to all behavioral health patients. Patients are encouraged to gradually decrease the amount of weekly visits to PSR up until the time that they no longer need services.

Crisis Stabilization/Detox Unit (CSU) CHI operates a 16-bed Crisis Stabilization/Detox Unit for the most severe cases of mental illness and substance abuse. CSU staff works with the individual as well as family and other care providers within behavioral health and external agencies. CHI is a Baker Act-receiving facility for those with mental health disorders who meet all the criteria for voluntary and involuntary admissions. The CSU is a short-term acute psychiatric receiving facility, open seven days a week and 24 hours each day at the Doris Ison Health Center.

Behavioral Health Consultants serve as a liaison for both Behavioral Health and Family Medicine departments. The consultants are responsible for screening both insured and uninsured patients in our Family Medicine unit for depression, anxiety, substance abuse or any other related mental health condition. They provide brief individual therapy and counseling, recommendations, as well as referring the patient for other services needed. Although our main focus is those patients we serve in our Family Medicine unit, we also reach out to other departments that request our intervention. No referral is required, only your voice asking for help.
