Our Purpose

Tampa Bay Thrives is a new nonprofit that will assist those struggling with mental health and substance use issues by helping to close gaps in the existing system.





Tampa Bay Thrives is a pilot project that will provide navigation to the right counselors, access to virtual short-term counseling for those that are unable to get in to see a local provider, and awareness that there is no shame in seeking treatment.


The effort is set to begin this summer with a community pilot program in Hillsborough County, with plans to expand in 2022 into Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties.
