About LSF Health Systems

LSF Health Systems (LSFHS) is one of seven Managing Entities who work in partnership with the Florida Department of Children and Families to ensure access to evidence-based behavioral health care services for people facing poverty who do not have health insurance.

LSF Health Systems serves a 23-county region in Northeast and North Central Florida, which includes Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Citrus, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Hernando, Lake, Lafayette, Levy, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Sumter, Suwannee, Union and Volusia counties.

State-funded behavioral health services help people and families who don’t have insurance gain access to much-needed mental health and addiction programs. Through this system-wide approach, people at risk for or diagnosed with mental health and/or substance use disorders are able to find the help they need. Services provided through contracted behavioral health care providers include prevention, intervention, treatment and care coordination to support optimal recovery.
