Community Foundation Awards $20,000 to DLC
David Lawrence Center (DLC), Collier County’s only comprehensive, not-for-profit mental health and addiction recovery treatment center serving children, adults and families, is pleased to announce that the Community Foundation of Collier County has awarded the Center a $20,000 healthcare and mental healthcare grant for the Children’s Crisis Stabilization Holistic Wellness Program. The Community Foundation’s healthcare and mental healthcare grants are designed to provide teens with disabilities with mental health services, case management and access to health services.
This grant will help fund the comprehensive, holistic services for children and adolescents residing in the eight-bed inpatient unit who are experiencing an acute behavioral, emotional or psychiatric crisis. To meet the growing demand for 24/7 emergency mental health services, DLC doubled the capacity of the Children’s Crisis Unit in 2017 by adding four additional beds, a new bathroom and a secure, outdoor fitness and recreation area. The grant funding will support the increased holistic services provided as a result of the increased admissions on the new unit.
DLC’s integrated recovery method utilizes a holistic bio-psychosocial treatment approach that combines evidenced-based practices and state-of-the-art medical supervision, while teaching new skills and activities that the individual and family can incorporate into their daily lives after discharge.
The goal of this integrated recovery model is to reduce symptoms related to anxiety, depression and trauma, and improve the child’s overall functioning and quality of life. As a result, the child has a better opportunity to succeed in school and develop healthier relationships at home and in social interactions.
The Children’s Holistic Wellness Program includes a variety of services provided by licensed professionals, including:
- Certified fitness training and education services
- Dietary and nutrition education
- Occupational therapy
- Music therapy
- Coping skills groups
- Therapeutic journaling
