The Florida State University College of Medicine has developed and maintains an online listing of mental health and social service providers in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas. This list is searchable by both providers’ specialty and also the insurance that they accept in order to help you find the providers near you whose skills and expertise best fit your needs.
2-1-1 Big Bend functions as a referral service for any social service, health, or mental health needs that you may have. If you’re having trouble finding the right provider for your needs in the Florida State Mental Health Providers directory, you can search the 2-1-1 Big Bend database through thousands of other agencies that may help. From the 2-1-1 Big Bend click on the “Find Help” button on the top left of the screen, or call the helpline by dialing 211 or (850) 617-6333.
