NOTICE: TDMHSAS Central Office to Temporarily Relocate Effective Dec. 17
The Central Office for the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services will be temporarily relocated to the Metro Center area of Nashville, effective Dec. 17. The mailing address will be: 601 Mainstream Drive, Nashville, TN 37243. All phone numbers, fax machines, and e-mail addresses will stay the same.
A recent change in Tennessee’s mental health law (Title 33) makes all admissions to the State’s Regional Mental Health Institutes (RMHIs)* subject to the availability of suitable accommodations (i.e., an appropriate bed). This means that admissions to a RMHI will be delayed if the facility does not have such a bed. Thus, transportation to a RMHI should not occur without written verification that an appropriate bed is available at the RMHI.
