Shelby Connects Network

Via a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) System of Care (SOC) grant, the Shelby County Office of Justice Initiatives (OJI) manages the Shelby Connects Network (SCN). SAMHSA is executed by The University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center (UTHSC). The 4-year collaborative agreement created the needed infrastructure to improve access to mental health and behavioral health services and provide support for youth 21 and under and their families. Using a “no wrong door” approach to care, SAMHSA SOC is part of an evidence-based model used for diverse populations from around the country.
