Help break the stigma surrounding mental health by volunteering at Tampa Bay Thrives and supporting our mission to create a healthier community.
Tampa Bay Thrives (TBT) was founded in 2019 in response to the reality that our region is facing significant mental health and substance abuse issues. Over 30 community leaders came together to determine the best approach and the priorities for a regional effort to improve behavioral health.
In Tampa Bay and West Central Florida, 1 in 5 has a mental illness
1 in 14 has a substance use disorder
Florida ranks 46th in terms of access to behavioral healthcare
We’ve all been there. Hiding behind a smile, acting like everything’s ok… When often, it’s not. IYKYK is an invitation to share stories of recovery and hope, allowing community members to share their struggles, tools for overcoming life’s difficult moments, and the victories that come with healing.
Often times people are wearing masks. You don’t know what battles they are facing.
