J. Speed Thomas Mental Assistance Center
The J. Speed Thomas Mental Assistance Center is at the core of the Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee. Through this program, community members have the opportunity to address mental health concerns related to self, a family member, an employee or other individual with concerned, compassionate and competent staff members.
Every year approximately 1,000 individuals reach out to the J. Speed Thomas Mental Health Assistance Center for direction, guidance and information. Many of those who call or email are family members. By speaking directly to a trained mental health professional, callers are able to discuss their concerns and receive the most appropriate referral information. The J. Speed Thomas Mental Health Assistance Center is, in this way, integral in supporting strong families in the community when they are confronted with unexpected mental health crises.
If you have concerns about your own or a loved one's mental health and need to talk with a mental health professional, please contact the Mental Health Assistance Center at 615-269-5355.
