The Miami Center for Mental Health and Recovery will provide a comprehensive system of care for individuals with serious mental illnesses and substance use disorders who frequently cycle through the criminal justice and other acute care treatment systems. Combined with programs of research and education, the Center will serve as a model for facilities of this type throughout the nation. The Center will develop and disseminate best practice standards in clinical care, training, education, implementation science and evaluation, and community outreach and advocacy to build a healthier, more compassionate, and fiscally responsible Miami-Dade County.
This project is supported by the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program and the Mayor and Board of County Commissioners of Miami-Dade County. Additional capital support provided by Jackson Health System Public Health Trust.
