It was an honor to have Commissioner Hughes Melton speak at our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in Southwest Virginia. Dr. Melton is the Commissioner for the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Disability Services.
In his speech, he delivered a message of hope. By recognizing the strides our state has made in providing services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, we can pave a clear path forward for mental health care in our state, particularly for our population with severe mental illness.
We look forward to the future of mental health care in Virginia and are thankful for leaders like Dr. Melton.
