One in every four people will battle with the challenge of mental illness each year. Suncoast Mental Health Center takes this number very seriously. Founded in 1998, Suncoast has the goal of enriching the lives of families they serve. Suncoast's services are geared but not limited to children and families that are considered at-risk and whose resources are limited. Patients will follow the process of an initial evaluation by which the best and most appropriate plan of action will put into place. From this point, the patient may receive a combination of therapeutic, psychiatric, and medication management all while under the care of a case manager and with the help of a family benefits coordinator.
