Welcome to Pinellas Healthy Transitions!
What is Healthy Transitions?
Florida Healthy Transitions is a program funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Healthy Transitions is here to help any young person between 16 and 25 years of age who is a resident of the state of Florida and is suffering from a serious mental health condition or a co-occurring serious mental health condition and substance use disorder.
The program aims to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16 – 25 that either have, are experiencing symptoms, or are at risk of developing a serious mental health condition. The program also aims to reduce stigma related to mental health, and focuses on empowering young people to be their best.
Life can be very stressful and challenging for youth and young adults and many of them have a limited number of people that they can turn to for support. 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares provides a caring ear for these youth ages 16-25 who need some support. We provide cultural and age appropriate crisis intervention crisis hotline services to youth and their families.
Pinellas Healthy Transitions aims to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16 – 25 that either have, are experiencing symptoms, or are at risk of developing a serious mental health condition. The Pinellas Healthy Transitions Care Coordinator ensure timely response and follow-up with all potential Pinellas Healthy Transitions youth. We facilitate direct service referrals to the Pinellas Healthy Transition local provider, Suncoast Center, who will assess, enroll, and provide individual and peer support to the youth enrolled in the program.
If you know a young person trying to cope and needing some support and comradery, please call 2-1-1 (727-210-4211) or text your zip code to 898211 and ask about Health Transitions.
