Be Resilient and Voice Emotions (BRAVE), a program founded in 2019 designed to reduce stigma and create conversations around mental health with youth, is expanding throughout the State of Florida. This is thanks to Florida House of Representatives Bill 3517 which will help fund the program's statewide growth.

“We would like to express our appreciation to the House of Representatives for recognizing the important work being done by the BRAVE program in northeast Florida,” said Paige Stanton, Executive Director of Flagler Health+’s Care Connect+. “This will allow the expansion of the program into more schools, positively impacting more youth in need of this vital programming.”

The BRAVE Program supports access to behavioral health services via care navigation and technology. BRAVE encourages youth to get in touch with their mental health early on and to be open to receiving help. As part of Flagler Health+’s Care Connect+, BRAVE works with the whole family to address social determinants of, and around, mental health to ensure the delivery of the proper care, at the right time, in the right place.
