What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In Florida, four million children and adults are challenged with a mental health condition. Barriers to treatment in southwest Florida include poor reimbursement rates, insufficient capacity and service gaps. Quite simply, mental health care has not been financially prioritized in Florida nor fully integrated into the broader health care spectrum.Our biggest challenge is meeting the great and growing need for services in an under-resourced system of care. According to the Kaiser Family Health Foundation, Florida ranks last in per capita funding provided by states for mental health and addiction treatment. Florida spends $36.05 per capita, while the national average is $125.90 per capita an. All the while, Naples is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the U.S. Over the last five to ten years, northeast Collier County as well as southern Lee County have seen the most significant population growth, creating a higher demand for mental health and addiction recovery services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Expand Children and Adolescent Services - Our goal is to be recognized as the expert in pediatric behavioral healthcare in Southwest Florida, develop an integrated care model and an integrated system of care. Ongoing innovation- Grow clinical innovations and seek new technologies, enhance partnerships, alliances and collaborations within the larger community. Increase access to care through facility expansion, technologies and strategic partnerships

The David Lawrence Center will seek ways to further enhance our collaboration efforts and will commit to being a highly engaged partner with community organizations and individuals such as hospitals, healthcare providers, not-for-profit organizations, nursing homes, assisted living communities, local schools, law enforcement agencies, faith-communities and academic institutions. Expansion of children and adolescent services is critical to address the unmet and growing needs of our youth, to fill gaps in the continuum of services and to change life trajectories. Specialized early childhood services, robust children's psychological testing and behavioral analysis services are among those that currently do not exist. Expanded capacity of existing services is also needed to reduce current waiting lists for David Lawrence Center services. Our goal is to be recognized as the expert in pediatric behavioral healthcare in Southwest Florida. Longer term residential supports are also critically important to foster successful recovery for those struggling with addiction. Sober housing, step downs from detox and intensive substance residential stays have proven to be most efficacious in aiding long term recovery results. Supportive housing saves lives, enhances lives and saves taxpayers money. As such, DLC is committed to work with our governmental and community partners to realize a plan for more individuals in need to truly have a ""home."" As an organization that seeks to achieve diversity in its funding stream, over time we would hope to balance our revenues with at least 15-20% derived through charitable giving. We are committed to ensuring DLC remains an organization that cares for all individuals in our community, regardless of ability to pay. To meet the community's current needs, to expand to meet the growing needs, and to be able to assist all who need care regardless of income or insurance status, we clearly will need to rally the support of the community to assist us in this vital mission. A fresh, new and slightly more modern-looking building could raise DLC's image and assist in competing for such clientele who otherwise might seek treatment elsewhere. Through building and campus enhancements, individuals and their families will find a more welcoming, private and professional environment which supports recovery and wellness and encourages others in and around Naples to seek the care they need.

Long recognized as the safety net mental health provider for Collier County, David Lawrence Center (DLC) has consistently provided exceptional care to thousands of individuals each year. In fiscal year 2014 alone, 8,592 individuals were treated in a mental health or substance abuse treatment program. In addition, 49,985 lives were impacted through brief triage, substance abuse or mental health education/prevention programs and other outreach services. Fully 30% of services assisted children. All are welcomed to receive care, regardless of ability to pay or insurance status. As such, DLC plays a vital role in the healthcare, economic and social service fabric of the Southwest Florida community.

In Fiscal Year 2015, DLC increased access to our life-saving and life-changing mental health and substance abuse care by serving more children, adults and families. In addition, we provided more inpatient, outpatient and community- based care than ever before and experienced dramatic double digit growth in many program areas. We met these great needs by implementing new initiatives, enhancing and expanding programs, investing in new technologies and expanding partnerships. However, much is still left to be done. We see the need all around is, in headlines we read and in those we know and love. As our community continues to grow, there is an urgency for us to expand care to ensure prompt access to effective, comprehensive and affordable mental health and substance abuse treatment.
