Behavioral Health Services

Catholic Charities of Central Florida is expanding in Brevard County with the addition of Behavioral Health Services. Leading this new initiative is Catherine Galda, a licensed clinical social worker who started on November 1, 2016 as director of Behavioral Health Services. The program will launch first in Brevard County in the spring of 2017 and a timetable for expansion into other counties will be announced later.

“We know families and individuals are hurting because of a lack of resources in the area of behavioral health, especially in Brevard County. Our goal is to accompany these individuals so they can be empowered to restore their lives and their families. Improving the behavioral health of an individual lifts up an entire community.”
