Tennessee Specific Resources

Knoxville Mental Health Resources

Sometimes mental health providers are hard to access immediately. By the time most folks actually make their first call to a mental health provider, they have picked up the phone several times, or drafted an email more than three times. So by the time you are asking for help, it can feel imminently important. However, most providers don’t have immediate openings (though some do) and it can be a bit of a wait from a few days through a month or more. So here are some Knoxville local resources should you need them.
