VIRGINIA MENTAL HEALTH ACCESS PROGRAM


THE PROBLEM:

Virginia children cannot access the mental health services they need. We suffer from a severe shortage of child psychiatrists- only two counties have sufficient numbers of child psychiatrists. Over half the counties do not even have one child/adolescent mental health professional. 1 in 5 children has a diagnosable mental disorder & 1 in 10 suffers from a serious mental health problem. The majority of these children have nowhere to go for help.

THE SOLUTION:
WHAT IS VMAP?
WHAT CAN THE STATE DO?
