Recent Accomplishments: 

  1. Manatee Glens' Call Center takes 99,200 inquiries a year from local residents seeking information, referral and treatment for emotional or alcohol and drug concerns.
  2. Manatee Glens' Walk-In Center welcomes more than 7,100 patients a year who can meet with a counselor to discuss their concerns without any appointment or insurance required.
  3. Manatee Glens provides alcohol and drug prevention services to more than 5,000 Manatee County students a year. 
  4. Manatee Glens provides child abuse and neglect services to more than 700 families a year, participating in over 100 adoptions annually.
  5. Manatee Glens is a teaching institution providing training to more than 200 physicians,  medical students, nurses, psychologists, and counselors annually.
  6. The new Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM)/Manatee Glens Hospital Psychiatry Residency program, makes Manatee Glens the fist private, non-profit psychiatric hospital to have its own medical residency program. It is one of only seven such Osteopathic programs in the country. The first residents started summer of 2014 and will stay four years.

 Current Goals:

  1. Expand Access to Care. Only one out of three adults and one out of four children who need access to mental health treatment actually receive it.
  2. Place patients and loved ones at the center of care. Manatee Glens carries hope for our clients until they are well enough to carry it for themselves.
  3. Implement solutions of Community Concerns. It is our calling to support our community as we have with solutions to problems such as homelessness, rape, child abuse and neglect, diversion from the criminal justice system, and failure to succeed in school.
  4. Maintain $17 million in annual charity care. Our Board maintains this level of service to our community despite the economic turndown, funding reductions, increased uninsured, and the prescription pain pill epidemic.


Founded in 1955 as a counseling center, Manatee Glens is today recognized as one of the foremost nonprofit mental health and addiction centers in the country, leading the field in the implementation of co-occurring mental health and addiction treatment and trauma-informed care in Florida.We also offer child welfare services focused on family safety and reunification or adoption. Our staff of 450 doctors, nurses, counselors, case managers and administrative staff serve 16, 335 people a year including 4, 047 children and teens--that's one out of every 30 families in our region.  
Through partnerships with hospitals, physicians and law enforcement, we accept referrals for more than $17 million in charity care a year. We are able to offer this extraordinary level of service through grants and donations from federal, state and local government as well as foundation and community donations.  Our average cost per patient served is less than $2,200 a year. Seventy per cent of our inpatients rate Manatee Glens' care as "excellent"--far exceeding average national customer service levels (HCAPS). We achieve these cost efficiencies and high customer satisfaction through compassionate care, community partnerships, disciplined business practice, high productivity and innovation. 
Manatee Glens is accredited by the Joint Commission. We specialize in difficult-to-treat adult and childhood mental health and addiction disorders including: 
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Bipolar and Schizophrenia Disorders
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
  • Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity
  • Alcohol and Drug Addiction
  • Prescription Pain Medication Abuse

Manatee Glens is a teaching hospital offering psychiatric care for both children and adults.  We provide training for more than 200 medical, doctoral and clinical students each year with a number of universities--including LECOM--across the country.    
Manatee Glens is recognized nationally for its innovative care.  Manatee Glens Access Center is a 24/7 "emergency room"  for those with mental health and addictions emergencies.  Manatee Glens Walk-In Center provides evaluations and counseling--no appointment necessary and no charge for the first appointment.  The "hospital without walls" (our FACT Team) allows seriously ill patients to continue to live in their own homes.
Recovery and healing are journeys that are personal and tailored to the needs of each person and family. Children teens, adults and seniors who face trauma, major life changs, addictions, psychiatric illness and emotional disorders come to Manatee Glens to quietly, yet dramatically, improve their lives.  We offer hope!
We are deeply committed to reaching thousands more, giving them-along with health and wellness-the gift of dignity and hope. Paying for health and wellness, even under the best of circumstances, can be a major challenge.  But when a family loses their way due to addiction or behavioral health issues, the financial demands can become even more daunting, especially if the family does not have adequate means.
The Manatee Glens Scholarship Program was established to help families and individuals in the quest for a better future, no matter what their financial status. When you provide a scholarship, 100% of your gift goes direclty to a family/individual starting their journey of hope. Consider a scholarship for the...

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

The mental health and addiction disorders treated at Manatee Glens are not rare. Almost every family has a loved one affected by a behavioral health disorder. Yet only one out of every three adults and one out of every four children who needs treatment seeks it. There are many reasons, including the stigma of these disorders. We are committed to changing that stigma. Manatee Glens must not only offer state-of-the-art treatment, we must also offer reassurance to families and their loved ones through education, personalized care, welcoming staff and inviting surroundings.

Manatee Glens serves one out of thirty families in our community. If we were to rely onstate funding alone, we would have to close more than half of our current services. We expand our reach into the community with support and resources from local governments, public agencies, businesses, service clubs and individual donors. We believe we earn the trust and confidence of these supporters each day by meeting the needs of our community. I am proud that about 45% of our staff donate to Manatee Glens annually and many more volunteer at events.

Manatee Glens operates as an active community partner not a "center on a hill." We reach out to the homeless, many of whom find themselves on the streets because of untreated mental illness or addiction. We respond to rape victims in emergency rooms. We deliver alcohol and drug prevention services in the schools. We work with the Sheriff to provide mental health and addiction services in the jail and after release. We also work with judges to provide supervision of their cases. Our psychiatrists go to local hospitals and primary care practices to provide consults and evaluations.

It is not easy to accomplish our mission. Florida ranks 50th among the states in per capita mental health funding and 35 out of 50 states in per capita addictions funding. Until parity laws are fully implemented, public and private health insurance continue to offer lower coverage and lower rates for the specialty care of mental health and addictions. Meanwhile, the need for our services continues to grow at double digit rates.

Manatee Glens is not only committed to getting care to our patients but to improving the quality of life in our community. We apply our leadership to improve education, criminal justice, health care and social services through active collaboration and progressive change with our community partners. Manatee Glens aspires to be not only the leading mental health and additions center in our region, but also a force for good in our community.


Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
As a  healthcare executive, I am acutely aware of the economic and regulatory pressures that weigh on Manatee Glens.   The management team is fiscally disciplined and accountable.  I truly believe there is no nonprofit in our area that can produce more results for the money.  As a board we receive a dashboard of key fiscal indicators, cash flow projections and clinical performance outcomes.  Manatee Glens is a nonprofit that operates as a business.  Staff productivity standards, fiscal benchmarks, effective use of technology and clinical excellence are in full play at Manatee Glens to assure a quality and cost-effective service.
Our Board includes an impressive group of community leaders including healthcare executives, school officials, political experts, business entrepreneurs and others with a passion for our mission.  We take our governance responsibilities seriously.  
With an aging capital infrastructure and rising demands for service, the Board knows that major capital investments are needed for renovation and expansion. We are not sticking our heads in the sand.  We have increased our development efforts by hiring a Chief Development Officer who is already helping us increase funding and  implementing a planned giving program. 
Manatee Glens plans on a five-year horizon through Board and staff retreats. Changes in healthcare in the next few years will be profound although hard to predict.  As a Board, we are committed to moving this agency away from its traditional posture as a social service agency in the community toward a position of a fully integrated health care provider.   This is an historic change but a necessary one.  One indicator of our commitment to this change is a sizable investment in an electronic medical records system.  Another is our application to train physicians by offering a psychiatric residency.  
As chair, I am focused on Board development this year.  We have a one-year plan for streamlining our meetings to address more strategic issues and to increase our effectiveness as a Board. As a Board, we want to give this community our best.

Patients participate in a case staffing with medical and clinical staff to mark progress and set new goals.  
Examples of Program Success
More than 95% of inpatients report Manatee Glens helped them with the problem for which they sought treatment.  Here is the story of two of our patients:
David's mother couldn't believe her ears when her teenage son admitted to her that he just didn't want to live anymore.  She drove him to Manatee Glens Children's Crisis Center with her heart in her throat.  David was relieved when the Manatee Glens staff discovered he was not only depressed but also using drugs.  His secret was out now.  David and his family could get the help they needed.

Mike drank throughout his youth and young adult years. He was in and out of treatment but was never serious about it. Mike was so desperate he decided to end it all. After he came out of the coma, he decided to get serious about getting alcohol out of his life. Manatee Glens gave me the tools to stay clean and sober. I haven’t had a drink since that day.

Outpatient services begin when someone in need calls our Call Center. Each caller receives confidential phone assessments, appointment times, referrals or information to help them or a loved one. There’s no appointment necessary at the Manatee Glens Walk-In Center which provides immediate crisis intervention, assessments and referrals, and short-term counseling for those who are experiencing personal or family crisis or trauma. This includes  mental health and/or substance abuse services. The Center is open 9 am to 7 pm, weekdays. The FACT Team serves as a "hospital without walls" to provide in-home  treatment to people with severe and persistent mental health issues. Team members are available 24/7. Manatee Glens Adult Outpatient Detoxification provides medically monitored detox from alcohol and/or other drugs. Programming provided 361 days a year. Outpatient services include counseling, therapy groups, substance abuse counseling, family education and medication and case management.

By the end of successful outpatient detox treatment, patients continue in rehabilitative addiction services.
Long Term Success Manatee Glens provides services with the ultimate goal that mental health and addictions patients will maintain recovery through outpatient services and avoid a relapse that will trigger another inpatient admission.  
Program Success Monitored By
All patients receive a client satisfaction survey.  Each quarter, approximately 400 outpatients complete surveys.
Each outpatient client approves a treatment plan with measurable goals. 
Examples of Program Success

Here are two patients that illustrate why those in our care patients have confidence in our services.

Having survived abuse, “Holly,” who also suffers from bipolar disorder was a client of our FACT Team, but is now able to hold a job, enjoy healthy relationships, teach Sunday School and volunteer. “I received counseling and took responsibility for my own actions. I learned to love myself. They let me feel like I have hope. I take accountability and ownership of my situation.” She has learned to cope with her illness, which involves medication management and strong time management. “I have faith now. Someday I want to be a mental health counselor to help others.”

Nancy's elderly mom was really looking forward to having all her grown children together for a family reunion on the shore. No one could figure out why mom was weeping at the slightest thing. Manatee Glens got mom's depression under control so that she could enjoy her life and family again.

Manatee Glens is actively supporting children and families in our community through services that include a collaboration with the Safe Children’s Coalition. We offer a holistic plan for helping more than 300 children and their families each year reunify or find adoptive homes. 
Manatee Glens Children’s Community Action Treatment (CAT) Team provides services to families with children ages 5-17 who have severe mental health and/or addiction issues. Services include assessment, parenting skills, education system advocacy and case management. CAT is expanding to serve families in Sarasota and DeSoto Counties.
Our Children's Crisis Center treats those who are not stable enough to be outside of our highly structured 24 hour facility. It is the last remaining children's unit in the county.

Children’s Day Programs work with the school system for elementary and middle school students with behavioral and/or emotional issues who can not function in traditional classrooms. Counselors work with the parents and children developing new behaviors.

Short Term Success
Manatee Glens makes the children and adults in child welfare a priority for mental health and substance abuse services. The majority of the children that come into services have been traumatized. Manatee Glens is able to make referrals quickly for mental health services. There is also a Psychiatrist on site bi-weekly at the Safe Children Coalition to ensure our children with emergencies can be seen for medication management, psychological and psychiatric services. Manatee Glens addresses case plan development and case supervision to children who are in "out of home" care assuring connection to ongoing services and continuing interventions as appropriate until solutions are reached.
Long Term Success
The long term goal is to keep families together and increase positive family dynamics.  In the event this cannot occur, Manatee Glens looks for stability and permanency for the children.  Manatee Glens strives to increase child safety, well being and permanency to sustain a healthy lifestyle for our families. The goal is to find a "forever family" for the children in care.
Program Success Monitored By The success of the Child Welfare Program is measured by state methodology performance standards determined by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
Examples of Program Success
With education and strong support, we were able to put almost 81% of children back in the care of their families and out of the system. 

Eleven-year-old Kendall  cried each morning before school and was so upset she couldn't eat breakfast. When she came to Manatee Glens Children's Day Program she learned she had an anxiety disorder that she could control through medication and the calming techniques taught by her counselor. Kendall now happily goes to school, plays sports and isn't afraid to appear on camera or stage or speak in public!

Adoption creates families. “Before we even got married, we had talked about adopting,” said Melissa, who along with her husband, Ron, adopted Shelby (15 years old)and Shannon (14 years old). “When we started, we had looked into all the different adoption options—even private placements,” said Ron. “But we thought that with such a big need in the foster system, we wanted to help there.”

People are surprised to hear that one third of all our outpatient services are provided in the community and not in the clinic. We go to the schools with alcohol and drug prevention and diversion services. We go to the jails to assist the mentally ill and addicted to link to treatment after their release. And we reach out to the homeless, many of whom find themselves on the street because of untreated mental illness or addiction.

Manatee Glens Rape Crisis serves all ages who have been victims of rape/sexual assault. At all hours we respond to calls at three hospitals and emergency rooms. From the time the call comes to the hotline to the trip to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) clinic through counseling sessions and perhaps criminal prosecution, staff and volunteers support the victims. They also assist in advocacy and securing victims’ compensation funds. Victim advocates provide education and support. A Licensed Mental Health Counselor provides individual and group therapy.

Short Term Success

100% of our rape crisis clients will experience improvement in daily functioning.

For the  jail programs, we plan to continue working alongside our partners at the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and in the judicial system. We will strengthen ties with the Community Coalition on Homelessness.

Long Term Success

For the school drug and alcohol prevention program we want to increase the number of students reached by 5 percent each year.

To have an advocate immediately available to any victim who calls the rape crisis line.  We are now providing victim-centered therapy based on her personal treatment plan, not a pre-set plan. Our goal is to continue this service.

Increase the number of clients who report an assault by 10% each year, with the ultimate of decreasing the total number of sexual assaults in our community.

Program Success Monitored By

The Manatee Glens Rape Crisis Center is Certified by the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence.

The Policies and procedures and protocols are reviewed by The SANE Center of Southwest and Central Florida, Manatee Victims' Rights Council, Children's Advisory Council, Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Trauma-Informed Workgroup, and others.

Examples of Program Success

Following in-depth training, Katherine Meisenbach became a victim advocate at the Rape Crisis Center, where she’s served as a volunteer for about 10 years. In this capacity,she is on-call to respond to anyone who calls the hot-line. She comforts those in need and helps them understand their rights as victims. “I do this because some loved ones were sexually assaulted. Now I have the attitude that I can’t do anything about the past, but I can help victims understand there is a way out of the pain and a better life ahead,” she stated.

“Mary's" rape happened 30 years ago. But she was finally ready to face it and work toward healing. She attended therapy groups to gain support and process her abuse history. After two years, she wanted to pursue legal action against the offender. With the support of her advocate, she made a controlled phone call to the offender in which he admitted to the abuse. She is now attending college and looking forward to her career.
Program Comments by Organization
Manatee Glens believes that the personal needs of our patients can be best met by offering comprehensive levels of care ranging from inpatient to outpatient for all ages.   No matter where a child or adult enters our system of care, they will receive a comprehensive assessment of both their mental health and addictions treatment needs.  We provide both walk in services and personal appointments.  Each patient will be offered the level of care alternatives that best fit their clinical presentation, their preferences and their family resources.  We strive to match our services to the patient and not the other way around.  Manatee Glens can offer integrated care for those with both co-occurring mental health and addictions challenges.  We provide trauma informed and recovery based care.   
Twice a year, the Manatee Glens Board of Directors reviews all our programs for numbers served, resources allocated and responsiveness to community needs.  Manatee Glens will reallocate resources and redesign programs annually through our budget process to maintain a match between what we offer and what our community needs.

Leadership Comments by Organization

We are striving to work more closely with our legislators in Tallahassee to raise awareness of behavioral health issues and addiction disorders.

Currently: Florida loses seven people each day to prescription pain pills

Florida is 50th in per capita mental health funding.

Less than half of those who need state treatment are receiving care.

Our goal this year is to see funds increased for child welfare substance abuse treatment and to restore cuts in funding for behavioral health and substance abuse.

Governance Comments by Organization The Manatee Glens Board seeks to govern through policy and development of the mission and vision of the organization. As a governing board, our membership averages about fifteen as we strive to work as one team.  We limit our standing committees to only three and work through ad hoc committees for time-focused projects.  All Board agenda items are addressed in depth through one of the standing committees allowing for most items to be placed on the board consent agenda.  Board meetings therefore can focus on our fiduciary responsibilities and strategic discussions.
