Mental Health

TruckBeat is part of WUOTs new East Tennessee Listening Project.

It's designed to turn traditional models of journalism on their head. TruckBeat wants to know what you think is important. We’re starting with a look at health, particularly East Tennessee’s addiction crisis, obesity, mental health, and access to health care and treatment. 

Stay tuned for more stories about mental health!
