Our mission

The mission of the Northern Virginia Mental Health Foundation (NVMHF) is to provide support to individuals in our community who are seeking public mental health services on their journeys to wellness and recovery.

We are a funder of last resort for individuals with Serious Mental Illness. Applicants and Case managers have explored other funding avenues. We are positioned as their final option for direct relief.
