    This event will bring awareness to Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Resources & Services available in Rural West TN.

    Removing stigma and providing education are key to improving the quality of care for Tennesseans. The collaboration approach is to shed light on services often right in front of us, but seemingly hidden because we don’t know where to access the services. All too often, people in need of services don’t know where to turn for access and support due to the stigma associated with receiving care for mental health needs.

    This conference will be educational for teachers, counselors, social workers, mental health workers, law enforcement, correctional officers, and anyone in a role who would like a deeper understanding about mental health issues and how to support individuals across the Lifespan. It is important we continue the conversation and provide the platform for communities, so together a solution driven approach will be addressed to help face the challenges of mental health and suicide prevention education.

    People recover from addiction every day. Families are rebuilt. Lives are restored. But recovery rarely happens in a vacuum. It takes a community willing to stand beside the person, to support them, and to help lead them out of the darkness.
    The State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services has launched an exciting, new mission partnering with faith-based communities across the state. Together, we are building a recovery network comprised of compassionate and concerned citizens who are reaching out to those struggling with addictions and connecting them to vital substance abuse services. Your congregation can join this effort.

    Attendees will...

    Learn about the disease of addiction and understand what recovery is and how both affect the community and how it may be affecting members of your congregation.
    Have the opportunity apply as a Certified Recovery Church OR Faith-Based Organization in the State of Tennessee.
    Receive a digital toolkit in advance that will start to provide information and resources in advance of the meeting.
    Learn about resources in the region and their own community to support their congregation and community members struggling with addiction.
    Learn about Substance Abuse Prevention Coalitions and their work in the communities in Tennessee and how congregations can support coalition’s efforts to prevent substance abuse and what strategies address the impact on the region.

    There is no cost to attend but registration is requested.
