Mental Health (Adult)
Gainesville, Florida

NFETC is a state forensic mental health hospital. We serve males who are facing at least one felony charge and have been identified as incompetent to proceed by the courts. Our focus is stabilization and achieving competency. We also serve males who have been identified as not guilty by reason of insanity. For them, we focus on stabilization and counseling services with a goal for them to be released to a less restrictive environment.
