Reducing Stigma and Encouraging Recovery

The Tennessee Rural Community Opioid Response Program (TN-RCORP) Consortium, a program of Rural Health Association of Tennessee (RHA), is announcing their new "Be There" initiative.

With the goal of reducing stigma and encouraging support, the campaign aims to bring awareness to the benefits of being there for those battling behavioral health issues including substance use disorder (SUD) and opioid use disorder (OUD).

Be There Campaign Materials

As part of a RCORP grant funded by Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), rural advocates put thoughtful input into developing messages to provide hope and encourage family, friends, colleagues and communities to be part of the solution and improve recovery outcomes.

A toolkit with these messages and unbranded graphics is available to TN-RCORP partners, hospitals, and community-based organizations is available for use in RHA Resource Center (sidebar menu). Create a guest login, or use your RHA member login, to access the materials.
