Upcoming opportunities for Virginia advocates

Following the tragedy in Blacksburg, Virginia has taken a hard look at its mental health system. The process continues with a series of upcoming hearings and meetings throughout the Commonwealth. On June 5, the Richmond Times-Dispatch is hosting a public square discussion on mental health; on June 11, the Virginia Tech Review panel will hold a public meeting at George Mason University in Fairfax; and on June 20, the Virginia House Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee will hold the first of a series of public hearings to get a better grasp of the shortcomings in Virginia's mental health system.
