Client Testimonials

Mental Health America
of Central Virginia
Lynchburg, VA

"MHACV offers mental health services in a continuum throughout a lifetime--prevention, intervention, treatment, support, and recovery. We offer screenings, consultations, and referrals; educational courses; support groups; and presentations on mental health topics of interest to local civic organizations, churches, and the general public. We were faced with seriously declining income from traditional sources such as grants. SCORE helped us to identify areas where we have unique strengths and experience. SCORE helped us to develop a practical strategic plan for using our resources efficiently and effectively, and they are continuing to work with us to implement some of the key steps in the plan."

Since working with SCORE, we believe we are operating more efficiently and effectively as a professional business. We are more confident in making decisions as business owners.

The mission of the Council is to cultivate relationships and resources critical to a thriving cultural community in Central Virginia through advocacy, marketing, publicity, networking, and collaboration. We are committed to inclusivity and transparency in our endeavors. We feel we have identified realistic goals, objectives, and strategies that will permit us to contribute in a meaningful way to the continued development of a thriving cultural community in Central Virginia.
