How are Virginia and Arlington addressing our crisis in mental health care?

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

 

Join the Arlington Committee of 100 and representatives from state and local government to learn what’s being done to address the severe shortage of mental health care services in our area.  Our crisis reflects the nationwide exponential growth in those suffering significant mental health issues since the onset of COVID and a lack of resources to treat them.  A fall 2021 survey estimated that 500,000 adults in Northern Virginia suffer from active symptoms of mental health disorders.  Forty percent of those suffering cannot access help because of a lack of income or adequate insurance, and the sufferers often face discrepancies in treatment by ethnicity.  

Panelists:

  • Beth Arthur, Arlington County Sheriff 
  • Deborah Warren, Deputy Director, Arlington Department of Human Service.
  • Nelson Smith, Commissioner, Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services
