How VMAP Works
Virginia has a severe shortage of mental health providers. At the same time, PCPs treating children and adolescents are not equipped to manage mental health in their primary care settings.
Enter the Virginia Mental Health Access Program (VMAP).
To address this need, VMAP does two things. First, VMAP gives primary care providers expert training and resources to better serve the children and young adults in their care with mental health needs with year-round education opportunities. Then, VMAP gives physicians access to on-call child and adolescent psychiatrists and licensed behavioral health professionals through our VMAP Line, which accepts calls 40 hours a week.
