Total Family Strategy



There is no greater vote of public trust in an institution than when it is given charitable contributions.  Tracing its history back to 1944 when the Child Guidance Clinic was formed, the public has demonstrated during all of these years its support for what is now Suncoast Center, Inc.  Serving over 45,000 children, adults, and families each year, it is through the charitable support and partnership of the community that the dedicated staff and volunteers fulfill the mission statement of “strengthening, protecting and restoring lives for a healthy community.”

1 in 4 individuals suffers from some form of mental illness and chances are someone in your family or a friend has been affected by it. Mental illness has an enormous impact on our community and nation.  You make the difference for so many and through your generosity clients regain their lives, families are remain together, victims become survivors … and our community becomes stronger.

Why your support is so important:

  • Treatment success rates for serious mental illness range from 70 - 90%, while treatment success for heart disease ranges from 40 - 50%.
  • Mental health problems account for five of the 10 leading causes of disability worldwide.
  • Clinical depression is the number 1 cause of disability worldwide.
  • Last year 1,458 children were evaluated by the Child Protection Team at Suncoast Center for symptoms of abuse and neglect.
  • During 2012 over 175 adults were evaluated for sexual assault or rape by Suncoast Center’s SAVE team (Sexual Assault Victims Exam). Pinellas County’s only accredited Rape Crisis Center is provided through Suncoast Center 24/7.
  • Pinellas County’s Children’s Advocacy Center provides comprehensive resources for children so they do not become victims again.

These needs continue to be the driving force of our organization, just as they have been since our inception. We are a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization comprised of carefully-selected professionals who are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to meet individual and family needs.
