As seen in the Naples Daily News posted on February 28, 2021
NAPLES, Fla. — Through a new collaboration with Wounded Warriors of Collier County (WWCC), David Lawrence Centers for Behavioral Health (DLC) will establish a new Veterans Services Program designed to build meaningful partnerships with veterans and their families to help them function better at home, in the community, on the job, in educational settings and throughout life.
An anonymous supporter has generously donated $100,000 to launch the program to assist veterans suffering behavioral health issues including post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety and co-occurring substance use – challenges that are common among today’s combat Veterans returning from deployment. Funds were made available through a donor-advised fund with the Community Foundation of Collier County.
