The State of Mental Health in Virginia

Virginia currently ranks 26th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Service (DBHDS) is responsible for improving upon their current mental healthcare system, and for providing the resources necessary to build resilience in their communities. The DBHDS determines the standard of care that all Virginia residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist.

Currently, the DBHDS is working on coordinating the delivery of healthcare services by establishing a strong integrative care model, while improving on accessibility in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery. From designing, development, and implementation of evaluation processes, to selecting the data reporting standards and measures used to analyze the efficacy of their programs, DBHDS works hard to ensure that all residents have access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.
