2015 Winter Newsletter
Found Help and Hope: A Mother’s Story
Linda Munday is 22 years old
and the mother of two year old
Isaiah. This simple statement
reveals a beautiful story. A story that Linda shares every day.
Linda has faced many challenges in life. She once said,
“I think God let the bad things
happen to me so I can share
my story and help others.”
Throughout her childhood, Linda lived in eight to ten foster homes.
Linda said she was featured on a local news station’s foster care
segment but was never adopted. She said it was so hard changing
schools and families so often and that she had a difficult time making friends because of the moves. Linda started to receive counseling and therapy for symptoms of depression and anxiety when she
was put in state custody and was diagnosed with post-traumatic
stress disorder and
separation anxiety disorder.
Linda grew up in a troubled home. Her father abused her sexually,
emotionally, verbally and physically. The abuse by her father continued until he was put in jail for multiple DUI charges. She was 5
years old when her father left her family and she has not seen him
since. At age 7, Linda’s brother and his friends raped her. Linda said
her mom loved her but never protected her. Her mother is deaf and
many times could not hear her cries for help. Linda said “I really
don’t know why I was removed from my mom specifically or what
happened that day. I just know my mom went to court. Her friend
had to take me to the court and I was bare foot. I was embarrassed,
my mom was crying and saying she cannot take care of me and my
brother. I was 8 years old and went to foster care that day.” Linda
said that she did see her mom for visitation a few times but her
mom’s rights were terminated soon after.
When Linda turned 18
she aged out of foster
care. At that time, she
left her last foster family and was homeless.
She lived on the streets
and stayed in shelters.
At the shelter she met
Tom*, the father of her
child and soon-to-be husband. Linda became pregnant and they
was referred to Center’s Healthy Families program by the health department where she went for a pregnancy test. CONTINUED ON
“I will always keep my son safe. I want him to be
with me and grow up in a stable loving home”.

The TAMHO Dorothea Dix Professional Service
Award was presented to Leann Human Hilliard,
Helen Ross McNabb Center’s vice president for
clinical services. This award honors a behavioral
health professional who has provided significant contributions over an extended period of
time to the behavioral health system that will
have a far reaching and long lasting positive impact on the quality and/or scope of behavioral
health services in Tennessee. Words like compassionate, understanding and innovative describe trailblazers like Dorothea Dix, Helen Ross McNabb and Leann Human-Hilliard. Leann
has practiced in the behavioral health field for more than 25 years. She earned her master’s
from the University of Tennessee College of Social Work and is a licensed clinical social worker. Her career, her compassion, and her innovation have served our behavioral health system
well. She is a true pioneer in the field.
The TAMHO Personal Courage Award recognizes an individual who exemplifies courageousness in facing personal challenges presented by mental illness in order to provide effective
leadership, advocacy, or support for programs that serve others through the public service
delivery system. Ms. Linda Munday, a graduate of the Helen Ross McNabb Center’s Healthy
Families East Tennessee program, was presented with the 2014 Personal Courage Award. As
you will read in this newsletter, Linda offers an inspiring story of overcoming life’s challenges.
You can read Linda’s story in this newsletter and see a picture of her with her award on pg. 4.
2014 Knoxville Challenger Serves Up
Support for the McNabb Center
This year marked the 6th Knoxville Challenger! The 2014 tournament raised more than
$130,000 to support mental health and addiction services. Adrian Mannarino from France
won the singles championship beating Australian Sam Groth. Also, a Challeger tournament
first, amateurs won the doubles championship and the players, Mikelis Libietis and Hunter
Reese, just happen to be on the University of Tennessee men’s tennis team.
Additionally, this year’s tournament
brought bittersweet news with Howard
Blum, passing the role of tournament
director to Adam Brock. Under Howard’s
leadership the tournament has raised
more than $600,000, all of which has
benefited the Helen Ross McNabb Center.
Howard, thank you for your commitment to organizing a first-class event
that supports our mission of “improving
the lives the people we serve.”

New Clinic Closer to Home for Anderson Co. Clients
The Helen Ross McNabb
Center is happy to announce
its new center located in
Oak Ridge (158 Fairbanks
Road). Services will include
medication management,
nursing services, individual
and family therapy and case management services for both children and adults. A multi-disciplinary team consisting of psychia-
trists, advanced registered nurse practitioners, registered nurses,
therapists and case managers will work to meet the individual
needs of each client. The new location will also serve as a home
base for domestic violence and sexual assault advocacy services.
The Helen Ross McNabb Center currently serves a significant
number of individuals who live in Anderson County. By opening
a clinic in Oak Ridge, the Center can better provide access to affordable care close to home for individuals experiencing behavioral health needs.
Veterans Move Home for the Holidays
Community leaders gathered in December to celebrate the
opening of Cedar Crossing, the first facility to be completed
through the Center’s veterans supportive housing project. The
new unit of housing is located in the Inskip community in Knoxville and has 8 housing units.
The Helen Ross McNabb Foundation has raised $1.83 million to
develop and sustain two different housing facilities in order to
serve, at any given time, 21 homeless veterans with a mental
illness and/or a behavioral health disability. The second phase
of the project includes the rehabilitation of 15 units located on
Washington Pike in Knoxville with an anticipated spring completion date.
Considering that Knox County, at more than 35,000, has Tennessee’s highest veteran population east of Nashville, it is of the
utmost importance that homeless veterans have access to integrated services to ensure the best possible outcomes for recovery and resilience. Supportive housing can be the first step in
addressing complex factors like mental illness, addiction, and job
loss that compound a homeless veteran’s ability to be healthy and
successful. Four veterans were able to move in before Christmas.

Sexual Assault Center of East Tennessee Relocates to
a Central Campus
The Sexual Assault Center of East Tennessee recently relocated to the Center’s John Tarleton Campus in Knoxville. SACET was previously located at 6215 Kingston Pike in Knoxville. The new location is centrally located, yet provides more privacy than the previous
location. The John Tarleton Campus will be a peaceful place for individuals to receive services.
The Sexual Assault Center of East Tennessee was founded in 1973 as the Knoxville Rape Crisis Center and remains one of two comprehensive, community sexual assault agencies in the state of Tennessee; serving 15 counties. The mission of SACET is to provide
excellent and compassionate services for survivors of sexual assault and to empower communities through education and social
change. SACET has four program areas, which include: sexual assault nurse examinations, advocacy, therapy, and education and
outreach. The 24/7 crisis hotline for SACET services is (865) 522-7273.
A Mother’s Story continued...
After the birth of her son, Linda had a hard time finding work
due to lack of experience, transportation and her hours of availability. She had to find a job with work hours that were the same
as her son’s day care hours. She does not have anyone that can
help her with childcare in the evenings or weekends. She also
had to find a job on the bus line because she does not have a
car. While doing volunteer hours for her Families First requirements, she found a job. After one year of volunteering Linda
was hired full-time at Goodwill Industries.
own resources to help, though, her biggest resource is her story
of hope and perseverance. The program empowered Linda
with the tools and resources she needed to break the cycle of
untreated mental illness, poverty and abuse in her family. She
shares her story in hopes of making a positive difference in others’ lives. From the complex trauma of abuse in early childhood,
to moving from city to city in multiple foster homes, to aging
out of the system and finding herself pregnant and homeless,
Linda found help, found hope, and has broken the cycle of
abuse. She is not only raising her son in a way that was not afforded to her, but has
also become a passionate advocate for
others. She is brave.
Linda has been abused, hungry, homeless and hopeless.
Through the support of community resources and her determination, she has achieved stability and success. Her story offers
hope. Despite her circumstances and dealing with mental illness, she is a success and wants others to experience the same
success. Linda actively looks
for ways to share her story
so that others can connect
to needed services like she
did. She has been interviewed by local TV stations
and actively advocates for
funding and other resources
so that Healthy Families
remains a viable service for
others in the community.
She has shared her story
with state legislators by
writing letters and participating in advocacy projects.
Whenever Healthy Families
faces potential budget cuts,
she is the first to raise her

Donations and Community Support Make the HoliDays Brighter for Families
The Dear Santa program
has provided holiday presents and parties for clients
served by the Helen Ross
McNabb Center for 12
years. Community volunteers are actively involved in making the
program a success by sponsoring wish lists for families in need,
donating money to holiday parties and special projects and/or
volunteering their time to help make it all happen. Funds raised
through the Beth Haynes 12 Days of Christmas Online Auction
benefit Dear Santa and allow the program to serve more children
each year. The 2014 auction
had 170 unique. one-of-akind deals provided primarily
by East Tennessee businesses. More than 2,000 bidders
participated, raising nearly
Trinity Health Foundation Grant Helps Introduce
Telepsychiatry to Rural East Tennessee
Recently, the Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee awarded the Helen Ross McNabb Center nearly $150,000 to introduce
telepsychiatry to its continuum of care.
The Helen Ross McNabb Center’s telepsychiatry project will provide greater access to high quality psychiatric care for East Tennessee children, adolescents and adults affected by mental illness, particularly those in rural locations.
With a national shortage of psychiatrists, it is rare and fiscally
challenging to provide mental health services in rural areas. For
states with large rural populations, telehealth has emerged as a
cost-effective alternative to traditional face-to-face consultations between provider and patient. With this funding, the Center will allocate nurse practitioners and psychiatrists to provide
telepsychiatry services in rural communities. The Center will purchase web conferencing equipment for Anderson, Blount, Knox,
Loudon, and Sevier counties. Clinical staff will be headquartered
in two Knox County outpatient clinics. This option will allow the
Center to provide children, adolescents and adults 750 addition-
al contacts with a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner
during the project’s first year.
On March 24, 2014, the Tennessee House of representatives adopted Telehealth Legislation –SB 2050(Overbey) HB 1895 (Keisling), requiring insurance carriers to provide coverage under a
health insurance policy for health care services delivered through
telehealth. The legislation applies to Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act plans as well as other insurance carriers, thus
providing coverage for the majority of consumers. This legislation
has made it possible for the Helen Ross McNabb Center to seriously pursue telepsychiatry as a service option and grant funding
from Trinity Health Foundation of East Tennessee has made it
possible to initiate and introduce this service to East Tennessee.
While access to psychiatrists continues to decrease, mental
health issues remain common and costly in our community. Providing access to affordable mental health care is paramount to
our community’s health.
