Specifically, the Children’s Community Action Treatment (CAT) Team serves families with children 11-18, with expanded services to age 21.

By utilizing a holistic approach, the CAT Team arranges or provides all services needed such as counseling, medication therapy, psychological testing and respite services. Individual and family therapy meets each family’s concerns. The CAT Team is available on-call to families 24/7 and 365 days a year. Office hours are 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM.

Lightshare Behavioral Wellness & Recovery's (aka First Step of Sarasota) Mobile Response Team is a 24/7/365 Immediate Crisis Intervention Unit for youths, adults and families who are experiencing a mental health or substance-use crisis. It works through our Access Center to dispatch help to home, healthcare facilities, doctors offices, schools or anywhere else in the community where the individual is in immediate need of behavioral health support. Mobile response is available to all residents of Sarasota County. Clinicians will respond via telehealth or in person to do assessments and will provide a 72-hour follow up. The goal is to divert people in crisis away from emergency departments, to lessen trauma and to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations.
