Mental illness and addiction comes in many shapes and sizes, with varying degrees of pain and frustration. Meridian Behavioral Healthcare Institute provides a safe haven for those who struggle with both mental illnesses and addiction. Meridian has been a Floridian non-profit since the 1960s, and it has served tens of thousands of lives since then.

Meridian’s mission is “to promote the health, recovery, and well-being of those affected by mental illness and substance use disorders through prevention, coordinated treatment, and supportive services.” In order to follow through with that mission, they provide several services on different levels of mental illness. From prevention to rehabilitation to psychology, the experts at Meridian strive to ensure that all those who need help can find it. In 2016, MBHCI helped 20,796 people, and they plan to continue that massive growth for years to come.

The Challenge

Meridian needed organization for their website. With the sheer number of services and the size of the audience that they cater to, there is a lot of content that needed to be updated and reorganized. Our challenge was to make the site clean and intuitive for their clients.

Structuring Their Services

In response to Meridian’s needs, we designed a custom WordPress template that allowed easy sidebar, header, and footer navigation on a mobile-friendly site. We also designed and implemented custom forms and email automation.

Finally, we restructured their content in a logical order that reads smoothly so those in need can easily navigate the site to find the help catered for them.
