DAYTONA BEACH – SMA Healthcare, in partnership with Flagler County and Flagler Health+, is excited to announce the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Flagler Access Center, which will take place on Tuesday, January 11 at 10 a.m. at 103 E. Moody Boulevard, Bunnell. The Flagler Access Center will provide an open door for education, screening, and connection to behavioral healthcare services in the area.
“We are thrilled to partner with Flagler County and Flagler Health+ to provide a connection for behavioral healthcare services for the citizens of Flagler County,” said CEO Ivan Cosimi. “We have been looking for ways to expand our scope of services in Flagler County, and we are confident this partnership will allow us to do just that.”
All Flagler County residents are eligible to receive services from the Flagler Access Center. Individuals who come to the Access Center will be screened and connected to appropriate services.
“Flagler County has been advocating for a project of this nature, and has stepped up to provide a convenient location for access to these much-needed services,” Cosimi said.
SMA Healthcare will provide walk-in screenings, crisis response, care coordination, and linkage to the federal housing effort known as PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) immediately at this new location, and expand to include individual and group therapy services in the very near future. Flagler Health+ will provide services for its ‘Be Resilient and Voice Emotions’ (BRAVE) program, which encourages youth to engage with mental health services early on in their life.
The center will also utilize other social service providers in the county to provide a continuum of care.
