Our vision is to provide comprehensive mental health care services for young children and their families in Collier County. The emphasis will be on providing services for children from birth to age three. These services would be housed in a clinic where a team approach in assessment and treatment would be used. The team would consist of a psychologist, play therapist, psychiatrist, speech and language therapist, and an occupational therapist. Research indicates that a collaborative approach which includes these disciplines in a well-coordinated team approach results in the best outcomes.
At present the foundation focuses on infants to 8 years old, providing anaylsis, therapy, counseling and parenting education with contracted Psycologists, Therapists and Psychiatrist.
