Increasing Access to Mental Health Services in Virginia: In Conversation

Michael Shea of Arlington Independent Media filmed a 30 minute kitchen table type conversation about barriers to treatment and how to improve access to services. We were fortunate to be part of this discussion, which included:  Dr. Alyssa Ward of the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) and VCU, Anna Mendez of Partner for Mental Health in Charlottesville (and MHAV Board President), Albie LaFave of the Region 10 Community Services Board and Charlottesville/Albermarle Public Defender's Office and Bruce Cruser from MHAV. You can watch the video on YouTube.
