Community Health Services

BayCare Behavioral Health offers comprehensive assistance programs and mental health services to benefit the communities we serve across west central Florida.

Our services for adults, students and families include:

Community Health

  • Community Health Activation Team (CHAT)
    CHAT prioritizes community prevention efforts in Pasco and Hernando Counties to improve health and save lives by focusing on four strategic areas: building healthy/safe communities, expanding quality prevention services, empowering people to make healthy choices and eliminating health disparities.
  • Drug Free Communities (DFC)
    The Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition in Pasco County focuses on environmental factors within the community that impact substance use. 
  • Helping Families Succeed
    Helping Families Succeed (HFS) provides various services including assessment of mental health needs and supportive counseling towards the goal of family stability and reducing risk factors. HFS also assists with employment, housing, financial issues and parenting interventions to eligible families in Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties. Assigned family court judges and social service agencies may make referrals. Self-referrals are also welcomed. 
  • Prevention
    Prevention programming compliments the continuum of behavioral health services by specifically articulating strategies and actions that can prevent youth and families from needing services or increase the ability to rapidly access services while supporting community population health strategies.
