Mission Statement

The Mental Health Initiative, Inc. is dedicated to promoting mental wellness, awareness, and alleviating stigmas that are associated with mental illnesses through education, outreach, and research. We strive to motivate, involve, and educate the general public about mental health in order to help those suffering from mental illnesses or its symptoms.

The Mental Health Initiative, Inc.’s mission is to restore hope among those who may be suffering from a mental illness or symptoms by encouraging them to "Learn, Accept, and Recover." As a Christian organization we believe that it is our calling to use available resources, information, research, and education to benefit the overall well-being of others. Even more, with the right amount of enthusiasm, compassion, and support, we believe that a significant difference can be achieved in the lives of others.

Our vision is to provide services, assistance, resources, and other useful information regarding mental health to those in the Middle TN community in order to increase treatment acceptance and reduce treatment resistance. The Mental Health Initiative, Inc. provides a variety of mental health services to individuals with mental health illnesses or symptoms or those who may have loved ones and seek knowledge of how to become supportive of their immediate challenges.

However, in order to accomplish such an endeavor, there must be a strong commitment and collaboration with the community in order to alleviate such disparities that are at the core of many mental health issues. A great sense of integrity, nobility, and responsibility to the community are the organization’s motivation to continue its mission to inspire those affected by such disparities to lead healthy, productive lives.
