Support line volunteer talking to a healthcare worker

You’re watching the suffering unfold. You are anticipating the impact of the pandemic on individuals’ mental health. You know you can help. But you can’t reach the people in your community who desperately need what you have to offer. Helping shouldn’t be this hard. We hear you.

We are the Mental Health Active Response Team. We are a team of private mental health professionals just like you. In partnership with the State of Tennessee, Tennessee Association of Alcohol, Drug & other Addiction Services (TAADAS), the Tennessee Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers Tennessee Chapter, and the Nashville Psychotherapy Institute, we have created a place where you can quickly connect to the people who need your help. Here you can offer your time and expertise to our frontline responders in their moment of need.
