September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and during this month’s FrankTalks, a panel will discuss efforts to positively impact mental health in our community and provide services and hope to those in need. The panel will include Franklin Mayor Dr. Ken Moore, Dr. Monty Burks, Director of Faith-Based Initiatives for the Tennessee Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services, and Amy Alexander of The Refuge Center for Counseling.
