AdventHealth for Children's Mental Health Program

Now more than ever, seeking care for mental wellness is especially important, given the increase in stress and isolation brought on by COVID-19. 

Our goal is to create a wholistic, mental health program at AdventHealth for Children. This new program will establish a much-needed clinical infrastructure to prevent crises, implement early screenings, improve access to patient care, and expand educational and board-certified mental health care services out into the community. 

You can help destigmatize the perception of mental health in our communities, while filling the gap in care for children living with behavioral and mental health disorders.

AdventHealth Golden Gala

Past | Present | Future

For more than 40 years, AdventHealth’s mission of extending the healing ministry of Christ has been celebrated through one spectacular community event — Golden Gala. Founded in 1980 by a volunteer organization, the Circle of Friends, Golden Gala has grown abundantly through the generous support and service of our community.

Each year, we celebrate our community and wonderful accomplishments in health with first-class entertainment, such as past performers Michael Buble, Martina McBride, Jay Leno, Rascal Flats, Josh Groban, and John Legend.

This sell-out, exclusive weekend event annually attracts more than 2,400 attendees and has generously funded essential programs and historic projects at AdventHealth. The areas of greatest need selected by the Circle of Friends have included the AdventHealth for Children’s Bone Marrow Transplant Program, Cardiovascular Institute’s Intensive Care Unit, Cancer Institute’s Cellular Therapy Lab, and more.
