Gracepoint

Mission: Immediately responding to all people seeking to improve their lives by delivering integrated mental health, substance abuse and medical care to promote health and wellness. Vision: Be the provider of choice for personal support and positive change. 70 years of impact Gracepoint is Tampa Bay’s leading provider of behavioral health solutions, dedicated to inspiring and creating life-changing wellness for every individual for almost 70 years. In 1949, mental health treatment for children did not exist in Hillsborough County. A broad range of Tampa’s leaders including women, clergymen, doctors and business people had the inspiration to begin Gracepoint. Interesting, our medical services were provided by Rosalind Cummings Murray, Tampa’s first woman psychiatrist. Our mission expanded to adults in 1962, along with the movement to provide local, community based treatment to persons with mental illness. As a full-continuum behavioral health provider, Gracepoint touches the lives of more than 56,000 people each year by delivering integrated care to promote health and wellness within 25 programs. With over 700 employees our highly trained, dedicated, and compassionate team of psychiatrists (25), nurses (68 ARNP’s, RN’s & LPN’s) licensed and master level clinicians (63), bachelor level care managers (122), and administrators work together as a multi-disciplinary team to provide individualized care and hope. We are very proud to say we have 25 board certified child and adult psychiatrists considering there is a national shortage. Staying ahead of the curve with innovative community solutions we have led the way to same-day access for outpatient treatment, integrating on-site primary healthcare (FQAC) & pharmacy services, created forensic residential diversion, implemented housing first, expanded our pediatric inpatient mental health unit (28 beds), established injection clinics, expanded Tampa Bay’s only mobile crisis response teams and created a no wrong door to mental health & substance abuse services. Gracepoint also provides over 350 units of affordable and/or supportive housing to people most in need. We continue to challenge ourselves to find treatments, improve customer service and develop improved approaches to care such as utilization of technology. Our IT division created a new system to better provide medical data for charting patient safety and for reducing wait times for law enforcement. Gracepoint provided over 9.7 million in charity care last fiscal year by not denying treatment for inability to pay, and we will continue to respond to all people seeking to improve their lives on their path toward wellness. Our consistent message is mental health is not only treatable, it needs to be talked about as easily as physical health. Only then can we bring suicide and mental health into the open so no one struggles alone.
