Join Child Savers and Voices for Virginia’s Children for the first-ever Healing for the Healers Advocacy day for mental health professionals serving children and youth. We all know the mental health system is in crisis, it’s time to share what you are seeing on the ground with lawmakers. Change starts with you.

The Details:

The event will take place on January 25th at the General Assembly Building beginning with a Healing Circle facilitated by Kristin Lennox, MSW from 8:30 – 9:30 AM.

Mental Health Professionals will then be led in small groups to have legislative meetings with members of the Virginia General Assembly.

No prior legislative experience is required, everyone will be led by a member of our staff. A prep session will be made available virtually.

Can’t make it in person? Join us for one legislative meeting virtually and/or record your story on flip grid to be shared on social media.
