The Medical Society of Virginia Foundation (MSVF) has been named the program administrator for the Virginia Mental Health Access Program (VMAP) by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS). The Virginia Mental Health Access Program is a statewide program designed to provide access for children to mental health services including: child psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and care coordination. As program administrator, MSVF will coordinate among 23 other VMAP partners to expand the program statewide through the establishment of five regional hubs.
Pediatricians, family physicians, and nurse practitioners across Virginia will have access to a phone number, website, and telephone or video consults with their regional VMAP psychiatrist and other team members. Care coordinators at each regional location will identify local, community mental health resources for children who need them.
