Improving Mental Health Care.
Improving Our Communities.
The VACBP's 2018-2019 membership application and sponsorship opportunities listing is now available. Through a strong coalition of community-based, private-sector providers, we are strengthening our voice to advocate for the mental health needs of individuals and families in Virginia. We provide VACBP members with the opportunity to unite, advance and protect the interests of the hundreds of small, mid-sized and large providers of mental health and substance abuse treatment care throughout the Commonwealth. Our strength is our membership.
We, as mental health providers, best understand the needs of our own communities. Those who provide care, VACBP members, should be involved in the discussions and decisions that impact the Virginians we serve every day. To join today, click here for the membership application.
