The culture around Nashville has largely reflected the university population. Other notable places include the reconstruction of the original settlement of Fort Nashborough, the Tennessee State Museum, and the Parthenon, which is a full-sized replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. The capitol building is one of the oldest working state capitol buildings in the country,1 along with the Hermitage, which is a presidential home that is open to the public. The Nashville Zoo is the newest attraction in the city. Of course, who can forget how big country music is to the city. Each year the CMA Music Festival is held in Nashville, which brings thousands of people to the city. There is also a large Christian pop music industry booming here.

Mental Health in Nashville

Illegal drug use is a problem of significant concern in the Nashville area. Over 18 percent of Nashville adults report having used an illegal drug within the past year, which is nearly 4 percent higher than the national average. Of these, marijuana and prescription pills were the most often abused drugs. Rates of use in Nashville for both drugs outpaces the national and state averages.2 As a result, addiction and recovery services are in high demand in Nashville.

The Eating Disorder Coalition of Tennessee is committed to providing appropriate support for individuals and families who have been affected by an eating disorder. Families for Families is a free support group where parents, siblings, friends, and other loved ones can come together to offer emotional support as they seek to help their loved one overcome the obstacles of their illness. Further details about this group are available by calling 423-752-5207, extension 6. For college aged women who struggle with an eating disorder, the College-Oriented Eating Disorder Group can help develop coping strategies that alleviate stress and lead to selecting healthier choices. The group meets every other Wednesday throughout the course of a semester.3

Current Initiatives

Mental illness is a difficulty that many homeless individuals face. In order to address both mental health and housing needs at once, the Tennessee Creating Homes Initiative was started in 2001. The Initiative works to secure funding to create housing options for residents who struggle with mental health issues. The Initiative seeks to build 1,100 housing units each year, with the support of regional housing authorities. Over $100 million in public and private funds have been raised thus far.4
