Black Healers and Healthcare Professionals 

What We Do


Increase Pipeline of Mental Health Providers


Highlight and Connect Black Providers


Support our Current Providers


Empowering Black Providers

As of 2019, only 3 percent of the psychology workforce in the U.S. is Black, yet many people are specifically seeking a Black therapist. That's why we're highlighting, creating, and sustaining a pipeline of Black  Health Professionals and community healers


BMHA Nashville is dedicated to supporting the mental health needs of our community. Unfortunately, access to mental health care can be challenging, particularly for those who are looking for a provider who is culturally competent and reflects their own identity. This is why BMHA Nashville has created a bridge form to connect aspiring mental health professionals with mentors, internships, and supervision opportunities. If you are working towards a career in mental and behavioral healthcare, or if you are looking for a mentor, internship, or supervision, or if you are a licensed mental health professional who is willing to provide mentorship, internship, or supervision, we encourage you to fill out this form to get connected.
