About Black Men’s Health Clinic

Location:

6633 Highway 290 E., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78723, US

Mission Statement

BMHC addresses disparities through effective strategies focused on decreasing mortality and morbidity rates among men of color to improve quality of life, self-health maintenance, and family lifestyle. 1. Increase the men of color number within East Travis County eating healthier 2. Increase the health literacy and comfortability for men of color in communicating their needs 3. Reduce stigmatization towards best-practice disease prevention & health screening measures 4. Increase the number of minority and culturally competent community health service providers Making healthcare more accessible in underserved and underrepresented communities with a focus on transforming stigmas regarding typical healthcare systems into positive life-changing experiences via reaching men where they live, work, play, and pray with culturally appropriate disease prevention awareness messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy, and patient navigation.

Description

Although the BMHC focuses on black men, it is open to all men of color, ages 18 and over, residing in East Travis County with a special interest in supporting veterans given the founder is a Vietnam-era Veteran and the board chair is combat retired (service-disabled) veteran). To meet service delivery objectives, BMHC providers fall within three major disciplines which include mental health, physical health, and social determinates of health.

The referral process for holistic and comprehensive services is two-way, with the clinic identifying patient needs and coordinating appointments with warm-handoffs (or education classes) and partners referring their patients to the BMHC for appointment coordination (or education classes) outside their cultural competency, bandwidth, or area of functionality. Multiple agencies collaborate to provide a menu of holistic services at the Black Men’s Health Clinic.
