Welcome to TCAF
The Tennessee Colleague Assistance Foundation (TCAF) is an independent, non-profit Tennessee corporation developed by psychologists for the purpose of providing rehabilitation and monitoring services for impaired mental healthcare providers, specifically psychology professionals.
The Tennessee Colleague Assistance Foundation (TCAF) is supported in large part by a grant from the state of Tennessee Board of Examiners (BOE) in Psychology, in addition to support from the Tennessee Psychological Association (TPA) and private donors. Because of the generosity of those who support the Foundation financially, in addition to the many who give of their professional time and talents, TCAF’s services are able to be provided free of charge.
Please Note: Any charges incurred for services provided in the areas of evaluation and/or treatment recommended by TCAF are the responsibility of the TCAF client.
