DAVID LAWRENCE CENTER DEBUTS NEW WEBSITE DESIGN
November 17th, 2015
Naples, FL – The David Lawrence Center, Collier County’s only comprehensive, not-for-profit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults and families, is pleased to announce the launch of their new and improved website DavidLawrenceCenter.org. In addition to vastly improved aesthetics, visuals and branding elements, many of the site changes were designed to make it more user friendly for visitors to understand how to access help and how to support the local not-for-profit.
David Lawrence Center’s site now has a responsive web design allowing for an optimal viewing and interactive experience across a wide range of devices such as smart phones and tablets. The website structure now includes search engine optimized content, user friendly navigation, and clear calls-to-action for admissions and donations.
The How to Get Help section now includes insurance information, frequently asked questions and videos, client forms and a more thorough explanation of the Center’s same day walk-in admissions process. The Treatment Programs section is easier to navigate and explains in depth the types of programs for adults and children including access to the new TeleHealth platform which allows people to schedule web-based, face-to-face video counseling sessions with a therapists from home. In addition there are multiple ways to view and search through the programs either from the homepage or through the site’s main navigation. In addition to these vital resources, the site gives viewers the opportunity to read success stories, as well as view photo galleries that showcase our work, campus, volunteers and donors.
Improved engagement, education and awareness were a major focus for the redesign as well. All pages have contact forms, making it easier to get the help needed and to inquire about services, events or volunteer opportunities. With a new and improved News and Events section accessible from the homepage, visitors can read the Center’s new blog on a variety of topics related to mental health, substance abuse, child care as well as resale and thrift shopping. Also accessible from this section are newsletters, e-news articles, press releases and event listings.
Included in the redesign was a completely new web presence for the David Lawrence Center’s Encore Resale Shop (EncoreResale.org) and the Center’s Child’s Path Preschool program (ChildsPath.org). The David Lawrence Center launched a new website for Crossroads (CrossroadsNaples.org), its adult substance abuse continuum, in December of 2014 and much of the design elements and functionality of that site were implemented into the DavidLawrenceCenter.org redesign.
