Tell Mayor Bowser and the DC Council, Children and Families in the District Need Access to Behavioral Health Services
The ongoing unpredictability of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, economic shutdown, distance learning, and other “new normals” have resulted in a documented rise in mental health issues among children and families nationally, which means that the District is facing a major mental health crisis. Now more than ever, DC residents need more, not less access to consistent and affordable behavioral health care that enables them to cope not only with ongoing behavioral health issues, but also with the elevated stress and trauma associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
