May is Mental Health Month

May as Mental Health Month. After the last year, the opportunity to pause, reflect, and evaluate our own mental health and that of the people in our lives has never been more important.

Throughout 2020, between 30 and 40 percent of Americans reported symptoms of anxiety and depression, and in Tennessee the numbers were similar. The rate has gone down slightly in the last few months, but it’s still at 35 percent. Compare that to 20 percent in a normal year.

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis or thoughts of suicide, please call our Statewide Crisis Line at 855-CRISIS-1 (855-274-7471).  The trained counselors who answer this line can talk through what you are feeling and refer you to the right level of care. Tennessee is blessed to have mobile crisis services for both adults and children available in every county.
