In Tennessee, an astonishing 75% of all crimes are drug-related. In 2018, more than 1,800 state residents died from a drug overdose. That’s about five people daily. Making matters worse, Tennessee ranked among the ten states with the least access to mental healthcare last year, according to Mental Health America. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Volunteer State, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
