The TN Healthy Transitions Initiative
“Now is the Time”
In 2013, President Obama announced the goal of a national conversation on mental health and the “Now is the Time” plan. The goal of the program is to increase access to mental health treatment, services, and supports – particularly for youth and young adults.
In October of 2014, Tennessee was one of 17 states awarded with a “Now is the Time” grant through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
