About us

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the lives of persons living with mental health challenges by advocating for improved public policy, educating health service providers, and connecting individuals to the right help at the right time.

Serving as a resource for our Tennessee community for so many decades, MHA of the MidSouth identifies vital mental health needs and facilitates the development of programs to meet those challenges and address service gaps. MHA of the MidSouth is a 501(c)3 charitable organization committed to education and support surrounding mental health.

Mental health problems don't define who you are. They are something you experience. You walk in the rain and you feel the rain, but, importantly, YOU ARE NOT THE RAIN.
