For the General Public
Managing Entities (MEs) contract with providers on behalf of the Florida Department of Children & Families. The MEs do not provide direct services; rather, MEs contract with local, direct service providers, tailoring to the specific behavioral health needs in communities throughout the state. The role of the MEs is specified in Florida Statutes, 394.9082. If you are needing to learn about services, contacting the ME is a place to start.
