Project Rural Recovery

Mobile health clinics to serve behavioral and physical health needs of rural Tennessee

Through an innovative partnership with community behavioral health providers, TDMHSAS seeks to address transportation and infrastructure barriers and get much needed services to rural areas of Tennessee.  Project Rural Recovery uses mobile clinics to deliver integrated behavioral and physical health services in rural areas that are underserved and/or distressed counties.

Project Rural Recovery began in 2020 with a $10 million, 5-year federal grant.  Through a competitive grant application, TDMHSAS selected McNabb Center and Buffalo Valley, Inc. to serve five counties in east Tennessee and five counties in southern middle Tennessee.  With additional funding provided in 2022 by Governor Bill Lee and the Tennessee General Assembly, TDMHSAS expanded the program with another competitive grant application choosing Ridgeview Behavioral Health Services to serve five counties in east Tennessee and Pathways Behavioral Health to serve five counties in west Tennessee.  Read more about the expansion in this news release.

The mobile clinics are designed with a waiting area, lab space, and exam rooms.  At full capacity, the goal is to serve about 2,000 Tennesseans at about 4,800 clinic visits per year, and when the two new clinics fully come online in 2023, we expect to greatly increase those numbers.
