The largest city in Tennessee, Memphis was named after the ancient Egyptian city Memphis. Originally, the Chickasaw Indian tribe settled Memphis, but the modern city came into being in 1820 and was founded by James Overton, James Winchester, and Andrew Jackson. Memphis followed the ebb and flow of most of America until the Twentieth Century. It really became an economic powerhouse in the early 1900s when it became the largest market for spot cotton, mules, and hardwood lumber. The Memphis entrepreneur, Clarence Saunders, started two very important businesses in Memphis: the self-service grocery store and the supermarket. Saunders made a lot of money off of these ventures, but eventually lost it due to stock manipulations. His home, the Pink Palace, has become one of the city's many museums.1

Nearly 250,000 people in Tennessee suffer from a mental illness, many of which live in metropolitan areas such as Memphis. Of these, approximately 66,000 are children. Since Tennessee is only able to serve about 34 percent of those in need of mental health care, numerous people go untreated. As such, hundreds of people each year commit suicide in Tennessee and thousands more are incarcerated or live on the streets.2

Memphis residents who are in need of mental health care can find the services they require at the Comprehensive Counseling Network (CCN).
