Celebrating Suncoast Center’s 75 years of contribution to all the cities of Pinellas County. Helping to end child abuse, sexual assault and mental health stigma. Strengthening, protecting and restoring lives for a healthy community!
If we are going to reduce anger, rage, depression, suicide, sexual assault and many other ills of Clearwater and Pinellas County, we must change the minds and hearts of its residents, beginning in the home, the neighborhood, the schools, the churches and communities at large.
As a Christian, I come from a specific perspective. But the stigma of mental health must be replaced with education from earliest age on how to live, act and think. We must spread the education available from the Suncoast Center into all the fabric of our communities.
The Center would like to see Walk-in Mental Health Clinics, as we have Walk-in Clinics. We need more beds for adolescents in our hospitals, where they can get psychiatric treatment. I agree with them.
