About Black Men's Health Clinic


6633 E HIGHWAY 290, AUSTIN, TX 78723, US

Mission Statement

The Black Men's Health Clinic strives to address this healthcare gap for Black men by offering mental, physical, and social health services.


This is a first-of-its-kind health clinic addressing the long-time care gap for men of color. The name Black Men’s Health Clinic is intended to remind us of the inequities men of color experience and represent our commitment to addressing them. Black and brown men are far more likely than their counterparts to die prematurely of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. Even with research studies and modernized approaches to health, this statistic has unfortunately not changed. BMHC is here to ensure the longevity of life for men of color by elevating it to an essential priority, and providing resources designed to best aid them.
