Arlington’s Youth Mental Health and Wellness Committee (YMHW Committee) created this Resource Guide in collaboration with community members, the Arlington Partnership for Children, Youth and Families, Arlington Public Schools’ Department of Student Services, the Arlington Foundation for Families and Youth and the Arlington County Department of Human Services’ Children’s Behavioral Health Bureau.
The YMHW Committee is made up of Arlington community members who are concerned about the mental health needs of our Arlington youth and their families. Committee members meet regularly to discuss youth mental health and wellness needs and receive and share updates. The committee also identifies issues and topics related to youth mental health on which we can collaborate and help as appropriate to advocate to the board members of
Arlington Public Schools and Arlington County, and disseminate information and raise awareness on youth mental health-related issues in our community.
