Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee

Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee (formerly known as the Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee) is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that has been providing services to the Middle Tennessee community since 1946.  Our mission is to connect the community with specialized mental health and wellness resources, provide services that improve the quality of life, and promote effective services where mental health needs exist.


Over the years, MHAMT has worked diligently to educate all members of our community about how to attain good mental health.  We share our message of hope for mental wellness to tens of thousands of individuals annually.


By being a frontline resource for the community, MHAMT is in a position to identify important mental health needs in Middle Tennessee, and then often facilitates the development of programs to meet those needs or enhance resources to address service gaps.
