Mental Health America of Virginia understands that racism undermines mental health. Therefore, we are committed to anti-racism in all that we do. This means that we pledge to work against individual racism, interpersonal racism, and institutional racism in all their forms.

Student mental health must be a priority this school year.
Mental Health America recognizes the profound impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on youth mental health. Therefore, as students across the country return to their classrooms, we know we must prioritize their mental health and emotional well-being so that they can thrive in and out of the school setting.
MHA launches our annual Back to School Toolkit to give parents, teachers, and school personnel the tools and resources they need to support their children’s mental health.
