Improving Mental Health for Everyone
We provide intensive, flexible, and comprehensive assistance to help people living with mental illness meet their recovery goals.
Sometimes this looks like helping people access clinical services at the appropriate level of care, but more often it looks like helping people improve their social determinants of health and increase their inclusion within their communities.
We have formal agreements to accept referrals for this service from the UVA Emergency Department, the regional jail, and the Charlottesville-Albemarle Mental Health Therapeutic Docket.
We believe that all Virginians deserve an anti-racist mental health service system that is easily accessible and provides the full continuum of evidence-based and person-centered care.

We provide educational opportunities to increase the community’s ability to be a place where people with mental illness can live self-directed lives.
We are happy to lead a lead a workshop, give a lecture, or participate on a panel related to building communities best able to support citizens living with mental illness. We are also available to help your organization, faith community, social group, school, or workplace assess its ability to support your members with mental illness and improve your practices and policies to increase inclusivity.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about these opportunities.
