South Shore Coalition for Mental Health and Aging

The South Shore Coalition for Mental Health and Aging is engaged as a non-profit organization to provide mental health resources and support for aging to the residents of South Hillsborough County, including Sun City Center, Ruskin, Wimauma, Apollo Beach and Riverview.

We challenge everyone with the means to live a healthy lifestyle in their aging years, and help residents who need extra assistance by providing them with options that can assist them to deal effectively with their personal conflicts and relationships. Our outreach includes a quarterly seminar, Community Resource Guide, Community based Memory Screenings and the Coalition Office at Sun Towers Retirement Community in Sun City Center, Florida.

We have screening services for depression and memory loss, and a referral system to help those looking for a mental health counselor in Sun City Center, Ruskin or Riverview. We have expanded our support groups to focus on specific needs such as grief, care giving, memory loss, and have two groups that deal with the stresses of retirement living.

SUPPORT GROUPS

This year we need help in making sure that the 2020-21 edition is complete. and accurate. And that means going back to the companies and organizations we represent to make absolutely sure... We need help calling the organizations and companies included in the Community Resourse Guide to ensure we have the correct email address and then emailing those companies and organizations with update insructions.
