Network of BIPOC organizations and experts in the field. Following in the footsteps of the Central Texas African American Family Support Conference, the Austin Area African American Behavioral Health Network (4ABHN) was created in 2009 to further strengthen connections and networking opportunities for African Americans who are interested in behavioral health in the Austin area. Composed of behavioral health professionals, people with lived mental and behavioral health experience, youth and their families, faith leaders, and community members, the network identifies and brings together local, recovery-oriented supports.
In particular, the network exists to connect African Americans to services and supports that reflect a deep understanding of their unique challenges navigating a mental health system that was not built with their experience in mind.
