Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee Overview
Programs: The MHAC serves a critical role in referring individuals to service providers and other relevant resources. The center helps over 1,200 clients with mental health concerns each year. Callers speak with a mental health professional; the MHAC is then able to connect the caller with the most appropriate resources. This reduces the number of calls the person has to make to find the right services. Brochures relevant to the callers' needs are sent if needed. Callers are informed about prescription assistance programs in the community which are designed to provide free or low cost medications. The MHAC also provides mental health training to interpreters and health care providers across the state. Interpreters are trained on mental health diagnoses, treatments, systems and ethics. In turn, mental health providers are trained on how to conduct a session in which an interpreter is being utilized. These complementary trainings help to reduce language barriers for non-English speaking persons.
