Our mission is to promote mental health and eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness through advocacy, education, research, and service for the residents of Central Virginia.

mhacv 60 yearWe believe early detection of mental illness is critical and so is treating mental illness like a physical illness. It is just as important as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. We cannot wait years to treat mental illness, which has inspired us to start our B4Stage4 Campaign.


We are proud to be part of state and national associations with over a century of advocacy, public education, and the delivery of programs and services, Mental Health America is the country's leading nonprofit dedicated to helping all people live mentally healthier lives.

Making a difference in the lives of families in Central Virginia—one by one.Couplecartoon v8



Couples & Kids is a counseling center which focuses on the needs of adults and children who struggle with the challenges of everyday life. Using individual, couple, and family therapy, we help you face problems like divorce, relationship problems, anger, depression, grief and loss, behavior problems, trauma and abuse, parenting, and much more.

If you think there is a stigma associated with counseling, put the traditional images out of your mind. Couples & Kids is like walking into a relaxing room of sunshine and joy. Along the walls, posters praise the joys of childhood, love, and families. Games and puzzles fill tables and childrens’ books line the shelves just waiting for a moment when a parent and child have time for a story. It’s a place for families to work out their problems.
