U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Amid unprecedented challenges, this year the warm and loving Tennessee spirit remained resilient. From Memphis to Mountain City, the frontline medical teams, grocery store clerks, and warehouse workers tirelessly served their communities.

Becky Stoll, LCSW

Nashville, TN – September is National Suicide Prevention Month, a time for mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors and community members to come together and raise awareness about suicide prevention.

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, and the national suicide rate has increased by 35 percent since 1999. Although we will not have death by suicide data for 2020 for some time, events taking place this year, most notably the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, have without doubt had significant psychological and social effects.

Telehealth Revolution Is Here to Stay

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “In just weeks, Americans went from using telehealth—carrying out medical appointments over virtual connections rather than in person—in a relatively narrow set of circumstances to making it one of the most common ways to receive healthcare,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar writes in USA Today.
 
With outdated regulatory hurdles cleared, the telehealth revolution will be “a key part of President Donald Trump’s healthcare vision: an affordable, personalized system that puts you in control, provides peace of mind and treats you like a human being, not a number.”

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Hello, everybody. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you very much, everybody. Please. That’s a nice crowd on a nice, cool day. (Laughter.) It’s beautiful, though. Might be hot, but it’s beautiful.
