Recent reports have shown that Tennessee ranks 40th in the nation for youth mental health, and Knox County has limited access to mental health resources for people of color.

To start to alleviate concerns for some families, the city of Knoxville has awarded two organizations $20,000 to kickstart programs that provide mental health interventions to Knoxville’s kids and their families. It’s a way work toward healthy solutions for kids. 

City officials are calling on the community to join in their efforts, too. The Mayor’s Social Innovation Challenge asks local organizations to team up and develop creative and innovative projects that address the mental health needs for kids and teens, and their caregivers.
