Who We Are
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. TBT founders are leaders in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, and Polk Counties who work in industries and communities greatly affected by mental and substance use disorders. The founders aim to improve the lives of people who are seeking help.
