Mental Health America of the MidSouth (formerly known as Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee) was founded in 1946 by Vanderbilt’s first Chair of Psychiatry, Dr. Frank Luton with underwriting by the Junior League of Nashville. Our mission is to connect the community with specialized mental health and wellness resources, provide services that improve the quality of life, and promote effective services where mental health needs exist. Over the years, the MHAMS has worked diligently to educate all members of our community about how to attain good mental health. We share our message of hope for mental wellness to thousands of individuals annually.
