Nashville is largely democratic and this has remained for years despite the conservative leanings of the state. Interestingly, aside from one district, the people of Nashville have never been represented by a Republican on either the state or federal levels. Some fun trivia about this area is that there have been several movies that have been filmed in the city, such as the Green Mile, The Last Castle, the Coal Miner's Daughter, and The Thing Called Love. There is a large Protestant presence, with the church's headquarters for the United Methodist Church, Southern Baptist Convention, and the National Baptist Convention located in Nashville. There are around 20 colleges and universities in and around here,1 with another six colleges within 40 miles of the city, hence the reason that the city is labeled as the "Athens of the South." The colleges and universities are both private and public schools.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Nashville

Over 100,000 adults over the age of 18, which is nearly 10 percent of the population of the Nashville metropolitan area, suffer from a diagnosed mental illness. Nearly nine percent of the population has experienced a major depressive episode in the past year. Nearly 30 percent of Nashville residents smoke and 20 percent participate in binge drinking.2 While these statistics are based on individual behavior, when an individual suffers from mental illness, their entire family is impacted. Substance use and mental illness can lead to domestic violence, divorce, and abuse. For this reason, family mental health services are extremely important.

The Aging Commission of the Mid-South is an excellent resource for families who support an elderly loved one. Adult day care services are provided in order for senior family members to have a safe place to stay while family members are at work. In-home adult care services are also provided for families whose elderly loved one is unable to be transported to a day care facility. Meals, food supplements, and health promotion programs are available as well. Additionally, adult caregiver classes are provided. Further details about these programs may be obtained by calling 901-222-4100.3

Family Services and Assistance Programs

The Family Resource Centers (FRC), which are a cooperative effort between Family and Children's Services and the United Way, are a one-stop resource for school aged children and their families. Families in need of a helping hand can take advantage of the FRC's food, clothing, and transportation services. Childcare needs may be addressed, and for medical assistance, resources and referrals are available as well. There are many FRC locations in Memphis area public schools. For further information, please call 615-271-1765.4
