The State of Mental Health in Tennessee

Tennessee currently ranks 38th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS), is responsible for the reformation of their current mental healthcare system, and for providing the community-based programs and culturally responsive community support services necessary to build resilience in their communities. The TDMHSAS determines the standard of care that all Tennessee residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist.

Currently, the TDMHSAS is improving accessibility in all phases of mental illness - from prevention, to treatment and recovery - by providing linguistically competent services and encouraging co-occurring programs. The TDMHSAS wants to ensure that all residents have access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse, call the Tennessee Redline at 1-800-889-9789.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.
