NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Short-term counseling is now available for some Tennesseans thanks to a nonprofit mental health provider.
The Centerstone is offering COVID-19 relief through the Tennessee Recovery Project, which is a partnership with the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
“Our team is here to provide practical and emotional support that will help lessen the long-term negative effects of COVID-19, with an emphasis on emotional well-being,” said Sherry Randles, Centerstone director of crisis services. “We are promoting resiliency and recovery for Tennesseans, educating individuals and leaders on ways to cope and connect with local services as we get through this pandemic together.”
The nonprofit is also offering free connections to resources for those whose mental health has been impacted by this pandemic.
