Who We Are

The Nia Project’s mission is to empower African American women survivors of abuse, experiencing suicidal thoughts to access behavioral health services, find a new sense of purpose, lead more meaningful lives, and affirm their commitment to living a violence-free life.

“Nia” is a principle of Kwanzaa, meaning “Purpose.”

Clinical Programs - The Nia Project offers culturally responsive services free of charge for adults who are registered patients at Grady Health System. To qualify for Nia services, patients, regardless of gender and race/ethnicity, must have a history of suicidality or intimate partner violence. Provider or self-referrals are welcome. 

Research Programs - We are currently recruiting for a new study funded by the CDC that looks at the link between difficult childhood experiences and suicidal behavior in African American women. Provider or self-referrals are welcome for African American women with a suicide attempt in the past year.
