Guide to Mental Health Resources in St. Petersburg, Florida

St. Petersburg is nicknamed “The Sunshine City” due to its average of 361 days of sunshine each year.  It was known as a popular city for retirement due to its great weather and low cost of living, but has recently started attracting a younger set of newcomers.  Its growing art scene and culture is the allurement for this crowd.  There are often outdoor events and a very active night life downtown.

The city covers 137.6 square miles and is surrounded by three bodies of water that create the Tampa Bay.  It has the third largest public waterfront park in North America.  St. Petersburg has a humid subtropical climate bordering a tropical savanna climate, so it is occasionally struck with tropical storms and hurricanes.  The city contained 244,769 people in 2010 according to the U.S. Census.  It has the sixth largest rate of violent crime in the state of Florida and is less safe than 95% of the cities in the state.  The median household income in 2016 was $51,474.  In 2015, the divorce rate in Florida was 8.4 percent compared to the country’s rate of 6.9 percent.  The rate of dissolutions in the same year was 4.0 percent for Florida and 3.1 for the U.S.

St. Petersburg economy used to be fueled by tourism, but employment in financial services, manufacturing, medical technologies, information technology, and marine sciences is on the rise.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment was at 3.3 percent in March, 2018 in the city compared to 3.9 percent in the state of Florida.

City Concerns

The main element of anxiety during current times is the Parkland shooting incident in February of 2018, which occurred less than 4 hours away from St. Petersburg.  Teachers and parents are seeing an increase in mental health conditions in children and adolescents, especially during the school year.  The Personal Enrichment through Mental Health Services, or PEMHS, right outside of St. Petersburg has been turning children away due to the increase of inpatient cases.

How We Can Help

It is important for our youth to feel safe and understood, especially during times of stress.  We hope that this can be a useful guide to finding mental health support easier and faster.  Are you noticing different behavior in young loved ones?  Are their teachers, coaches, and/or family members noticing any changes?

Parents and all adults who are experiencing anxiety and any other mental health symptoms would benefit from counseling as well.  Listing your concerns, symptoms, and any relationship changes is helpful prior to making that appointment.  Most mental health providers will offer a consultation free of charge to be sure that it is a good fit for you.

There are an estimated 293 therapists, psychologists, and licensed social workers located in St. Petersburg.  Approximately 31 treatment centers are in the city.  There are approximately 69 psychiatrists.

Crisis Support

Pinellas Cares – Family Resources offers suicide prevention and crisis intervention.

The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay provides a multifaceted crisis intervention program.  There is a crisis hotline, with care coordination and a structured follow-up telephone connection until a treatment plan is in place.

Suncoast Center has been providing mental health services for over 70 years.  They provide support for emotional wellness, trauma services, and children advocacy services.

Directions for Living treats children with acute, mild to severe, trauma; loss and grief; depression, anxiety, abuse histories, and addictions.  Services are provided on location or in the child’s home for comfort level.  They offer adult therapy, group therapy, psychiatric care, and mental health navigators.

Family Resources offers individual counseling for children and teens ages 6 to 17.  They provide family counseling.  The family counseling is free for most families and affordable payments for those who do not qualify for the free payment program.

Life Adventures Counseling provides treatment for depression and anxiety for individuals, adults, couples, groups, and children.

Northside offers adult outpatient counseling, children’s outpatient services (individual and family psychotherapy), and medication management.  Northside is located approximately 39 minutes from St. Petersburg.  Medicaid may provide transportation.  Payment plans are available.

Tampa Community Hospital provides emergency care and psychiatric care, inpatient and outpatient for adults.

We hope that you and your loved ones are able to find your way to emotional and mental wellness with the help of our resources.  Moving from suffering to enjoying life is a worthwhile step in recovery.  Please visit us at in our directory for further help in finding a therapist.
