Mental Health Resources

VHF is dedicated to helping individuals live a mentally healthy life and we believe that taking care of the mind and spirit is as important as taking care of the body. One of the ways we do this is to offer programs that support creating bonds with your community and another way we do this is to offer resources to help you manage your emotional wellness and mental health. If there is anything else you need related to mental health, please do not hesitate to reach out, 804-740-8643, We are here for you.

For general (non-urgent) mental health questions you can contact the social worker at your Hemophilia Treatment Center or contact your primary care provider to discuss mental health treatment and/or obtain a referral to a mental health provider.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency crisis, please dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
