LifeStream is a behavioral health and social services organization that provides high-quality treatment, education, care management and rehabilitation services to children, adolescents and adults. Located in Central Florida, LifeStream primarily serves the residents of Lake and Sumter Counties, with homeless services provided in Orange County. Beginning in 1969 as a component of Waterman Memorial Hospital in Eustis, LifeStream became an independent non-profit organization in 1971. Since then, LifeStream has grown to twenty-one facilities and fifty-two programs to help those who suffer from mental illness and substance abuse achieve recovery and resiliency. Over the years LifeStream has helped hundreds of thousands of individuals across our community. In Fiscal Year 2013 alone, LifeStream provided services for 12,921 unduplicated clients. Total visits of 290,895. Yet with tens of thousands of individuals in need
our community going untreated each year, LifeSteam's volunteers and staff remain committed to reaching out and empowering individuals to achieve recovery and resiliency in their own lives. LifeStream's clinical staff is comprised of behavioral health care professionals who provide a multi-specialty team approach to quality care. This team, made up of psychiatrists, advanced registered nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, nurses, case managers, psychiatric technicians, therapists and counselors, is committed to providing the best care possible to every person we serve. In addition, LifeStream has contracts with medical physicians and physician assistants to evaluate and oversee the general medical needs of those individuals who are hospitalized or reside in one of our many residential programs. As a community-based organization, LifeStream is governed by a Board of Directors composed of community volunteers.
