It’s not always easy to spot the signs of depression, anxiety, stress and sadness in our youth. That’s why Flagler Health+ Care Connect and the St. Johns County School District, with support from THE PLAYERS championship have teamed up to create BRAVE; a program that encourages area youth to:
• Get in touch with their behavioral health early on
• Be open to receiving help
• Address social barriers
• Access behavioral healthcare services at the right time, at the right place
Through BRAVE, Flagler Health+ Care Connect serves as the hub for student behavioral health referrals for all 39 schools in the St. Johns County School District.
Utilizing a unified intake process, Care Connect staff identify unmet social needs for the entire family, eligible resources, and the most appropriate behavioral health provider for the student. This includes services provided by Epic Behavioral Healthcare, Children’s Home Society and St. Augustine Youth Services. BRAVE has the resources families need, including care coordination and navigation services, access to virtual mental health counseling visits and a 24 -hour crisis text line. The program also includes on-site telehealth booths that offer access to urgent-care and mental health services.
Be BRAVE. Contact us today if you or someone you know needs help.
