It is the mission of TMHCA “To promote recovery and community through peer support, education, and advocacy for all mental health consumers in Tennessee.”


The TMHCA PeerLINK program offers help from others in recovery that have been there. Some issues with mental health and/or substance abuse problems can sometimes make people feel very alone and that no one understands. People don’t have to be alone anymore in their journey.

TMHCA’s program is really good. I like it when I’m taught information about voting rights. I like to have access to other services and TMHCA helps coordinate care for me.

The staff treat you like you are intelligent and with dignity and respect. I like the various subjects designed to meet my program needs. I like that the programs treat the whole health of the person.
It is exhilarating and informative. It reiterates what I learned academically. The superfluous classes like music therapy, art therapy and health classes are excellent.
