In 2018 alone, Virginia was home to 1,448 fatal drug overdoses, according to the CDC. That’s 4 people every day. Not to mention, the state was among the twelve states with the least access to mental health care nationwide. Add to the mix the fact that nearly 52% of Virginia residents with any form of mental illness do not receive care, and there is a problem. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of Old Dominion, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
