Upcoming hearing on AOT

This Monday, the Virginia Senate Education and Health Committee will be holding a second special subcommittee hearing on Senate Bills 18 & 309 – which would update Virginia’s AOT standards to allow for more effective use throughout the Commonwealth. The last hearing was very interesting, highlighted by testimony from advocates from around Virginia each detailing the need for reform. We expect an even stronger turnout this time, and encourage everyone with an interest in the Virginia mental health system to attend.

The hearing will take place in Senate Room A in the General Assembly Building at 10:00AM, this Monday, September 25th. Directions and information on visiting the Capitol are available here.
