Representative Sparks To Host Opioid And Mental Health Town Hall Featuring Chairman Bryan Terry

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — State Representative Mike Sparks (R-Smyrna) is hosting an opioid and mental health town hall featuring House Health Committee Chairman Bryan Terry, MD (R-Murfreesboro) on Oct. 29 from 6:30pm-8:00pm. The panelists will be discussing the opioid and mental health crisis in the local community and how best to curb this dangerous epidemic.

“I have heard far too many stories of people and families suffering from the opioid and mental health crisis that is plaguing our communities across Tennessee,” said Representative Sparks. “This town hall will be a great way for folks to learn more about the dangerous epidemic and provide individuals with the resources they need to assist someone who may be suffering. Please join us on Oct. 29 so we can continue to fight back against the opioid crisis and help those suffering from mental health issues.”

“According to statistics, Tennessee is among the hardest-hit states when it comes to the opioid epidemic which has killed over 5,000 people in the state,” said Chairman Terry. “While the federal government and the Tennessee General Assembly is working to curb this epidemic, more must be done to help protect our communities. This town hall will be a great resource for members of the community to learn more about the opioid and mental health crisis so they can spot someone who is suffering and provide much-needed support.”

Panelists include elected officials from the Tennessee General Assembly and Rutherford County, along with members from behavioral health, mental health courts, and advocates for veterans will speak.
