"The Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee (MHAMT) promotes mental health for all people through advocacy, education and service."  Founded in 1946, the MHAMT has founded the Dede Wallace Center, Tennessee Voices for Children, Park Center, and the Crisis Intervention Center.  MHAMT believes there is no health without mental health, that mental illnesses are real and treatable, and that every life is worth saving.  Programs focus on suicide prevention, persons with dementia and their caregivers, domestic violence, school success, and telephonic assistance for persons in need.  The Hispanic outreach programs afford all programs to be conducted in Spanish.  This critical needs grant will fund six months of the Hispanic Outreach so that all programs of the MHAMT can continue to be offered in a culturally competent manner.
