ENDING THE OPIOID CRISIS

Become a Faith-Based Ambassador

Faith-Based Ambassadors serve as points of contact between a Faith-Based Organization (FBO) and the TN Department of Mental Health and the contact(s) for recovery support services in their respective areas/region.

Partners in this project are from TN Department of Mental Health Certified Faith-Based Organizations. Your FBO will need to be a Certified Faith-Based Organization before you will be considered for a Faith-Based Ambassador appointment.

How can I do that?
1. Visit the TN Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse.
2. Contact the Director of Special Projects (Monty.Burks@tn.gov) with any questions.
3. Download and discuss the application and questionnaire with your organization’s governing body.
4. Fill out and return the application to:
