Gary A. Hayes, Ph.D

Founder And Chairman Of The Board

Gary founded TBH in 1996 with a simple vision to help doctors do what they do best – take care of patients.

In his role as Chairman of the Board, Gary spends his time advising the company’s leadership team on long term strategy, growth opportunities and culture. Specifically, Gary coaches the leadership team on how to create and maintain an environment where psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners dedicated to the treatment of the seriously and persistently mentally ill can work together in a supportive and collaborative environment while leaving bureaucracy behind.

Prior to founding TBH, Gary A. Hayes, Ph.D was both a hospitalist and had his own private practice. For a decade he divided his time between an acute psychiatric hospital where he was on the medical staff with admitting privileges and on the hospital rotation in the morning and his outpatient practice seeing children adolescents & adults in the afternoon.

Gary holds a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from University College Cork, Ireland.

When not working, Gary enjoys swimming, reading good books, sitting by the fireplace with his black lab and having his four children style his hair.
