Mission Statement

Our mission is to raise awareness of a desperate need for expanded and accessible mental health and well being programs, and to erase the stigma of mental illness through education and community outreach.

Description

Mental illness is a treatable disease, yet in a society that tolerates prejudice and discrimination against persons living with mental illness, treatment is often not sought.

The Heart of Virginia Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation formed in response to the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007. The Heart of Virginia Foundation offers charitable and educational opportunities to promote emotional well-being through the arts and to fight the stigma of mental illness.
