Henrico County has created an online resource to share with the public the latest news and information about COVID-19 (coronavirus). This dashboard, at https://arcg.is/0qn194, serves as a clearinghouse of resources, including a map that shows in real time confirmed cases throughout the world and links to state, federal and international health agencies.


During the State of Emergency related to the COVID 19 pandemic, Henrico Area Mental Health & Developmental Services will be suspending walk-In requests for Same Day Access Services for mental health and substance use treatment.  We recognize that there is a continued need for mental health, substance use services during the pandemic, and have shifted our business model to meet these needs.  The stress related to the pandemic has increased many individuals’ level of isolation and anxiety, and some people may be in need of services now more than ever,

We are temporarily suspending the vast majority of physical face-to-face services relying on telephone and telehealth (video conferencing) to support individuals in the community.

To access services:

  • Please call 804-727-8515 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, and let the person answering the phone know that you are seeking mental health or substance use services.
  • They will connect you with a licensed therapist who will gather some more information to make sure that we are able to meet your needs.
  • Once we have determined that we can assist you, you will be asked a number of basic questions—age, date of birth, address, etc. You will also be asked for some financial information including insurance information.
  • On the same day, or within the next business day, you will be connected to a licensed therapist either through the telephone or a video conference for a full assessment.

This is a new technology for many people but has been proven to be an effective therapy tool. We look forward to serving you.   

You can now pay for services on-line!
