Our Mission 

Enabling children and families

to transform overwhelming challenges into

successful futures

250,000 youth in Virginia struggle with mental health issues. Despite high rates of mental illness in children, 4 out of 5 children ages 6 to 17 who have mental health problems do not receive any help.  For many of our communities, especially in the rural areas there is little to no access to mental health services. Poor mental health can impact a child’s success during school years, impair mental development, and imprint patterns of behavior that limit future success, happiness, and community contribution. 

  

When  youth gets access to high quality mental and behavioral health services, it can change just about anything.  It can improve family relationships, and help kids spend more time in school. Reducing the risks of school failure, poor employment opportunities and breaking the cycle of adult poverty.

but its solvable by:
