Virginia's Children Need You!
Every year, the number of children in need of services grows, while state and local funds remain stagnant or shrinks.

Access Changes Everything
Access means success in school

and youth have a diagnosable mental health disorder.
Access means being healthier and saving lives
Mental health issues have been linked to high rates of depression, anxiety and suicide rates for the child. Research shows that half of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14.
