West Tennessee Forensic Services


WTFS is a very young organization. It was founded in 2008 when Midtown Mental Health Center shutdown. At that time Dr. Lynne Zager was head of MMHCs Forensics department. So as not to throw away years of hard work, business connections, and contracts Dr. Zager was able to take her team and found WTFS.

The Forensic Team of WTFS, Inc. has been in operation since 1973. Originally funded through a grant by the Law Enforcement Administration Agency, the program is currently funded through the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS), the state Criminal Courts, the Shelby County General Sessions Criminal Courts. WTFS, has an exclusive contract with TDMHSAS to provide forensic evaluations in Shelby County.
