About BMHA Nashville
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.
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.
•Trauma-informed and evidence-based community care – We use data and community discussions to identify, prevent, and address the consequences of poverty and trauma in our community
•Harm reduction – Confidential and judgment-free continuity of care and community support that reduces our dependency on existing systems of oppression
•Transformative justice centering on the healing of all victim
•Systems approach – Addressing structural racism and resource inequities underlying health disparities and poor mental health
•Abolition - Addressing the harm in our community without involving the Prison Industrial Complex
