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.

Presentations:

TN Suicide Prevention Network Overview- Phillip Barham

Autism & Comorbid Internalizing Disorders- Dr. Verity Rodrigues

Mental Health Panel- Megan Hart, Keri Virgo & Melinda Hardin

Grieving Through Trauma- Sean Jones
