Find your inner power by helping others

Founded in 1962 as the "Mental Health Association in Nash-Rocky Mount". Our name was changed to "Tar River Mental Health Association" in December of 2003 to create a more community-inclusive organization that would support both Nash and Edgecombe Counties.

"To promote mental health and eliminate discrimination through advocacy, education, and service in Nash and Edgecombe counties."
