Mental Health Care is Revolutionary

BMHA Nashville seeks to improve the health status of African Americans in Nashville and in the US by reducing health disparities through education and legislative, administrative, and media advocacy.

We want to bring awareness to the unique struggles that African Americans face regarding mental illness in the United States.

Our group aims to remove the barriers that Black people experience getting access to or staying connected with emotional health care and healing. 

Through our support groups, community discussion, and forums,  we hope to highlight the mental health needs of Black Nashvillians  & address their concerns through community organizing and by connecting members with local Black mental health providers. 

Mission

BMHA Nashville is a bold, local nonprofit organization harnessing community, data, and novel technology to facilitate innovative whole-person healing and mental health education. Through community-led healing initiatives, we aim to address mental health disparities and the well-being of Black and minoritized communities impacted by trauma, poverty, or lack of mental health care access.

Vision

BMHA Nashville envisions a world where Black people can live happy and healthy lives. To make this happen, we're working on building a supportive community interested in healing and collective liberation.
