Motlow State Community College is holding its final Collegiate Recovery Academy on the McMinnville campus this Wednesday, March 16, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm.
The event, to be held in Room MC103, is a collaborative partnership between Motlow and the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and is a first among Tennessee Board of Regents community colleges.
Motlow president Dr. Michael Torrence will begin with opening remarks at 12:30 p.m. He will be followed by speakers Nathan Payne, Monty Burks and Allen Burnette.
Collegiate Recovery Academy is an all-inclusive, college-wide academy offering opportunities to learn more about supporting recovery needs from substance abuse and discovering what you can do to support suicide prevention and mental health across the Motlow community and beyond.
Participants will meet and hear first-person experiences from individuals who have come through their journey to recovery and found valuable connections to programs and resources. Mental health professionals will lead discussions and provide multiple options that can create change.
Collegiate Recovery Academy is an opportunity to be a part of transforming the Motlow community by helping those who suffer from mental health challenges.
