Tahanna works with the West Virginia Collegiate Recovery Network to create a more inclusive environment on the Mountwest CTC campus for students who are in recovery. Tahanna also helps students who are also suffering from substance misuse disorder.
“I am in recovery from substance misuse disorder. I know all too well the struggles of being a student in recovery. I also know how difficult it can be to ask for help at times. However, I want all students to feel confident in the fact that I am here on campus to help you! If nothing else, feel free to stop by and introduce yourself.”
Not everyone realizes how triggering things college culture, college vocabulary, or even completing a FAFSA can be. Tahanna is here to act as a mentor, and to provide outreach and early intervention if the need arises. She is at Mountwest to inform and lead a student’s journey!

According to Ulifeline.org, suicide is “the act of deliberately taking one’s own life.” Suicide is also the second leading cause of death among college students. Suicide is a very serious subject and is preventable. The following are some of the warning signs of suicide: talking about wanting to die or kill oneself, talking about feeling hopeless or no reason to live, increasing the use of alcohol and/or other drugs, anxiety, agitation, sleeping too little or too much, showing rage, extreme mood swings, and others. Most people that attempt/commit suicide have an underlying mental health concern such as depression, anxiety, or substance dependence. If you or someone you know is experiencing some of these symptoms, Mountwest is here to help!
