TN Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse ServicesTN Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS) and the TN Department of Health are renewing the #ResilienTN partnership to raise awareness around drug overdose and suicide prevention.
As we emerge from the pandemic, it’s never been more important to be in touch with and protect your mental health.  During the pandemic, self-reported rates of depression and anxiety were double what’s seen in a normal year.  Use of substances to cope with those feelings also increased significantly.  While more and more aspects of daily life are getting back to normal, people are going to continue processing the feelings and decisions made during this time of immense stress, and we fear that may result in increases in drug overdose and suicide. 

Opioid Overdose Reversal KitOpioid Overdose Reversal  November 9, 2021, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT  (1:00 - 2:00 CDT)  Naloxone is a key tool in reversing the rising tide of overdose and resulting deaths. Naloxone is the only antidote to reverse an opioid overdose, and it’s never been easier to use. This training is perfect for people at risk of opioid overdose, family and friends of those who are at risk of opioid overdose, and anyone interested in learning how they can save a life by reversing an overdose.  For more information send an email to

This virtual training is presented by Catherine Brunson who serves as a Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist.
