New Flagler Cares Behavioral Health Program: Behavioral Health Navigation
Beginning September 1, 2021, Flagler Cares will be accepting clients for a new Behavioral Health Navigation program. This program aims to create a new point of access for non-crisis mental health and substance use disorder services and subsequently reduce the need for crisis services. Individuals will be connected with appropriate service providers for mental health and/or substance use disorder concerns through this program. To apply for the program, click here or call 386-319-9483 to schedule a phone screening appointment. Partner organizations can refer clients to the program by emailing Nichole Smiley, Behavioral Health Navigator at Nichole@flaglercares.org

You can register here and you will be sent a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar. The session will be recorded and posted on our website and YouTube channel soon after the live session for those who cannot attend.
Prescription medications can be helpful when it comes to treating pain but when individuals do not properly use, store, or dispose of prescription medications, it creates an opportunity for drug misuse.
