The Mental Health needs of Northern Virginia's youth have only increased since 2020. The 2022 Virginia School Survey of Climate and Working Conditions shows that one in ten high school students have seriously contemplated suicide in the past year, while one in three have symptoms of recent clinical anxiety.

Join the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia for a discussion of its next Insight Region® report to be launched that morning, “The Shape of Youth Mental Health: Finding a Way Back from Sadness and Stress for Northern Virginia's Teens.”

This report follows "Finding our Way Back to Mental Health" launched in March of 2022 which identified the extent of mental health needs in our region's adult population.

The event is open to the public and is free to attend (in-person or virtually), though limited in-person seating is available.

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s Events & COVID-19 Policy:
  • Upon review of both the CDC guidance on community levels of COVID-19 and its website listings showing our own Northern Virginia counties' positive case percentages, the Community Foundation has removed its proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements.
  • Additionally, the Community Foundation does not require masks be worn. You are welcomed to wear a mask if that makes you comfortable.
  • As always, if you are sick or feel you are getting sick, we ask that you please stay home.
The Community Foundation will continue to follow COVID-19 guidance from local health departments and the CDC for in-person events.

Currently, the COVID-19 Community Level is at LOW in our region. The CDC recommends that those who are at high risk for severe illness talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions. LEARN MORE >
