Mental Health Resources in Chattanooga, Tennessee

As the fourth-largest city in the state of Tennessee, Chattanooga serves as an important transit hub and is often referred to “The Gateway to the South.” The city is located within about an hour-and-a-half drive of the Knoxville and Nashville as well as Atlanta and Birmingham in neighboring states. Chattanooga has an estimated population of 179,139 as of 2017 and continues to grow as a result of its diversified economy which is a sustained by a combination of thriving manufacturing and services industries. The city is becoming well-known as a desirable place to live with its redevelopment and some of the most affordable housing in the nation. Along with overall improvements to the city, Chattanooga has work to do with addressing the mental health needs of its residents. In Hamilton County where Chattanooga is located, 19 percent of adults reported that a healthcare provider has previously told them they had a depressive disorder.

A Growing Trend

The prevalence of mental illness is increasingly common. This isn’t just a trend within the city of Chattanooga but is being experienced throughout the state and many other parts of the country. Between 2013-2014 about 233,000 Tennessee residents aged 18 or older had been diagnosed with a serious mental illness.

As one of the largest cities in Tennessee, Chattanooga can play an important role in improving the conditions for those suffering from mental illness and the related problem of substance abuse. Ensuring that there is plenty of access to quality mental health services is crucial in tackling the problem head-on.

Know that if you are suffering from some undue stress, think you may be in the middle of a depressive episode, or are dealing with another condition that is having a negative impact on your quality of life, there are options for getting help. If you are in need of assistance, we can help you find a Chattanooga mental health professional or therapist. We understand how critical it can be to find someone that can work with your schedule and within the hours that suit you.

Deciding that you need to make a change and seek out additional support is a big step to make, but you don’t have to do it alone. When you are ready to find the right therapist in the Chattanooga area we can help to make the search as easy as possible. This starts with evaluating what your unique requirements are. Everyone’s situation is different, and therapy is not a one-size-fits-all exercise.

Where to Start

Before you begin browsing the services available to you, it’s a good idea to pause and take the time to ask yourself some questions about what you are hoping to get out of the process and what your needs are. If you can gain some clarity on the reasons why you are seeking therapy, it will be easier to identify whether certain programs might be a fit for you. If you don’t know where to start, here is a list of questions that you can begin with:

  • What are you experiencing that is interfering with your normal life?
  • What is the outcome you are hoping for at the end of the therapeutic process?
  • How long are you willing to meet with a therapist?
  • Are you more comfortable speaking with a male or a female regarding your issues?
  • Are you dealing with a medical condition that is best addressed with a specialist?

With the answers to these and other questions, you’ll be able to get a picture of the kind of assistance you might need. It might take some time to find the right fit for you but finding someone with whom you can clearly communicate can make all the difference for your treatment.

What Will Your Health Insurance Cover?

Cost is often a consideration for people when evaluating the services they can access. We suggest getting in contact with your health insurance provider to see if they cover mental health services. You may find that if you use someone in their network, you can save a considerable amount out-of-pocket.

This could be an important first step in reclaiming your mental health.
