African American Mental Health and Wellness Program


The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing and Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) are partnering with the City of Austin, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, and Rehoboth Baptist Church to develop the AMEN - African American Mental Health and Wellness Program with a new initiative to support the mental and physical health of African American residents. AMEN Program will include on-site clinical services, mental health education programs and mental health training for pastors. Austin Public Health is funding the effort with a grant to the UT Austin School of Nursing for more than $500,000.

We would like to acknowledge and thank our partners Division of Diversity and Community Engagement; Family Wellness Center; Mt. Zion Baptist Church; and Rehoboth Baptist Church for collaborating with the UT Austin School of Nursing to deliver and test the AMEN Program.
