Tennessee Mental Health and Crisis Resources
The Jason Foundation has compiled an informational packet of Mental Health and Crisis Resources on a county-by-county basis. It is our intention to educate communities about the resources that are available to them. Click the button below to read more and download the statewide guide.
This project was conducted by The Jason Foundation, Inc. with the support of the State of Tennessee and the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
The resources listed are for informational purposes only. The Jason Foundation does not endorse, recommend, or vouch for the quality of services provided by the agencies in this packet. Please use caution when choosing the provider and services that best meet your individual needs, costs, and standards.
If you would like to submit your organization for consideration, contact TNWBS@jasonfoundation.com as we update the packet regularly to include additional resources.
