Atlanta Behavioral Health Advocates

Atlanta Behavioral Health Advocates (ABHA) is an interprofessional and collaborative group of behavioral health professionals in Atlanta, Georgia engaged in social justice advocacy for the: (1) behavioral health needs of individuals and families who experience oppression, discrimination, and barriers to healthcare and who are disproportionately impacted by social inequities; and (2) behavioral health needs of the broader community when facing public health challenges and during times of crisis and tragedy. We work toward social justice by seeking the perspectives of, and elevating and amplifying the voices of, community members so that their interests and needs are known, respected, and addressed. We are committed to educating the public, fighting prejudice and stigma, building the community’s resilience when faced with adversity, and increasing the availability of quality and culturally-informed behavioral health resources.
