Description: Emergency Shelter and Outreach Services

The Douglas Gardens Community Mental Health Center provides comprehensive mental health services to people living in the Greater Miami Beach area. The Center was established in 1979 as a federally funded CMHC private non-profit State of Florida Corporation. The Center is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the National Council for Behavioral Health Care Organization. It is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of 21 volunteers living in the Center’s service area who are vested in the Center’s client’s success. The Board provides overall policy direction for the Center operations.
Adults of all ages and backgrounds come to the Center for help managing their symptoms and living comfortably within the community. Our broad array of behavioral health care programs and services help these individuals achieve a more functional life and support resiliency and recovery for individuals who are living with mental illness.  The Center treats chronic mental illness, acute emotional disorders, substance abuse, and special population needs. The center’s bilingual professionals (English and Spanish) also provide help for individuals with substance abuse problem, experiencing domestic violence, living homeless, and needing help with a loved one that has Alzheimer’s disease.
The Center is a recovery-based model of care for co-occurring treatment. We use assessment tools that reflect strength-based recovery approaches and self-directed care. Our treatment plans incorporate Wellness Recovery Action Plans (WRAP). We have a self-assessment tool and procedure as part of the intake process (ROSI).  Implemented evidence based practice modules into group interventions (Social Rehabilitation). Recovery and Wellness materials are used in outpatient, case management, and residential mental health services. We have an established peer counseling program including peer-facilitated support groups and clubs. Staff and Peers have been trained utilizing the “Train the Trainer” format and are active in coordinating Recovery -Oriented Mental Health Services. We do didactic training addressing co-occurring disorders through the CCISC Partnership and the administration of the baseline surveys (COMPASS and CODECAT).
At the center, you can also expect superlative care for a senior family member or loved one. And, many services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance.
