New Programs HOME 2 RECOVERY – CHARLOTTE COUNTY Homeless individuals with serious mental health and substance abuse issues often do not respond to traditional approaches to treatment. In 2006, Coastal was awarded a $2 million grant, over a five year period, from the US Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) to provide these individuals in Charlotte County with the support, treatment, and rehabilitation services they need to continue living in the community. Coastal administers the Home 2 Recovery program, with support from Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, Punta Gorda Housing Authority, University of South Florida Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI) and the Florida Peer Network. The ultimate goal of Home 2 Recovery is to end homelessness through: • Actively partnering in treatment for mental and physical healthcare • Quality of life improvements such as increased housing stability, assistance obtaining and maintaining paid employment and nurturing healthy relationships • Reduced hospitalizations • Educational support SOUTH LEE COUNTY FACT TEAM The Florida Assertive Community Treatment Team (FACT) is an evidence based model of care designed to assist people with serious and persistent mental illness to live as independently as possible in the community. In 2006, Coastal added South Lee County to our list of highly successful FACT Teams in Sarasota, DeSoto, Charlotte, and North Lee counties with a $6.3 million, five year contract from the State of Florida Department of Children and Families. The Team provides comprehensive, community-based treatment with individualized treatment plans, promotes recovery and empowerment through partnering, self-determination and personal choices. Goals include: • Advocating for greater satisfaction and personal choices in all aspects of daily life • Fostering physical and mental wellbeing by reducing symptoms and hospital stays • Nurturing healthy social relationships

• Pursuit of paid employment • Reducing symptoms and number of hospitalizations • Support of education

The Board of Directors of Coastal Behavioral Healthcare, Inc., proudly joins the staff in presenting Coastal’s 2006-2007 Annual Report. If you are among the many that supported Coastal this year and in the past, we take this opportunity to thank you for your help in making Coastal one of the most effective organizations of its kind in the country. If you are reviewing this report to help you decide whether to become a Coastal supporter, we thank you as well. Simply by your consideration of the case for supporting Coastal you demonstrate your fundamental concern for the well-being of those members of our community which Coastal serves. It is customary in messages such as this to speak of the challenges the organization has faced in the preceding year, and our successes in meeting those challenges. That is no less so for Coastal in 2006-2007. We operate in a rapidly-changing environment of economic concerns and reduced public funding for mental health and substance abuse care. The same economic stresses cause increased demand for our services, in addition to the demands of serving a growing community. As Coastal supporters, you should be proud to know that the dedication of our professional staff, leveraged by smart, innovative management leadership, is meeting these challenges and that the organization is in a stronger financial position than it was a year ago. Your Board of Directors is committed to maintaining this approach in the coming year, as we believe that only by maintaining financial strength do we provide our superlative professional staff with the resources needed to fulfill Coastal’s mission: To provide behavioral healthcare services that exceed expectations for quality, availability and satisfaction. Please join me in welcoming Patricia Anderson of Longboat Key and Dudley Carson of Sarasota to Board membership, as well as Sarasota’s Jim Allan, former director and Board chair who was able to rejoin us this year. All the Board joins me once again in thanking you for taking the time to learn of Coastal’s successes, and its needs, and for your help in truly “Caring for Our Community”.

Program Successes

FROM THE DESK OF OUR PRESIDENT & CEO On behalf of the staff of Coastal Behavioral Healthcare, I am pleased to present our 2006 – 2007 Annual Report. This report can only represent a snapshot of the complex panorama of successes, challenges, and opportunities that occurred during this period. In a year of static or declining state and local funding, Coastal received $8.3 million in new state and federal multi-year contracts and grants. This accomplishment is a tribute to the quality of our staff and the quality of the services we provide to more than 5,000 consumers each year. For over 36 years, Coastal has been the safety-net provider of behavioral healthcare services to the most vulnerable members of our community. As the mental health and substance abuse needs of our consumers have become ever more complex and the funding to provide those desperately needed services ever more restricted, we have turned more and more to our community partners to help maintain the level of service provision necessary to our community. It has become increasingly apparent that in today’s funding climate, one organization cannot be all things to all people. Our culture at Coastal is to work collaboratively with any and all community resources that will help us provide superior service to our consumers. I am gratified that our community has answered the challenge and that we enjoy excellent working relationships with numerous and varied persons and organizations in the communities we serve. The dedication and professionalism of our staff, the engagement and collaboration of our community partners, and the determination and perseverance of the people we serve to live their lives as fully as possible, engender in me a sense of optimism and hope for the future. To all of you who have contributed to Coastal’s success during this year, our Board, staff, donors, and community partners, I want to say a heartfelt thank you.

In fiscal year July 1, 2006 – June 30, 2007 Coastal provided services to 5,621 individuals in Sarasota, DeSoto, Charlotte and Lee Counties.
