FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 5, 2013

GRANTS AWARDED TO HELP IMPROVE SERVICES FOR
VIRGINIA’S CHILDREN WITH MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS
Recipients Include Local Agencies in Alexandria, Fairfax-Falls Church, Loudoun, Charlottesville and Henrico

 

RICHMOND, VA –Today, Virginia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) Commissioner James Stewart announced that five community grants have been awarded to help improve mental health services and support for children who face serious mental and emotional challenges. These grants will help the families of these children as well as improve and expand current community resources.


“We must do everything we can to help ensure that every child with mental health needs has access to the treatment and services that can make a difference in his or her young life,” said Commissioner Stewart. “Providing communities, parents, and participating organizations with resources and supports to strengthen behavioral health services will help improve quality of life for young people with mental health issues and brighten their futures.”

 

These grants are part of Virginia’s System of Care Expansion Implementation Grant, which is awarded by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration through DBHDS. The five grants total $2,862,790.00. Funding runs through September 30, 2016.
