The Northern Virginia Coalition for Refugee Wellness (NOVACRW) oversees the Refugee Wellness Initiative in Northern Virginia to include the cities and counties of Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria, Loudoun, and Prince William. It is an affiliate of the Virginia Healing Partnership, a statewide collaborative effort of the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services, the Virginia Department of Social Services, the Virginia Department of Health, support partners and refugee communities across the Commonwealth.
The NOVACRW has two primary focus areas:
1) To support a seamless process for mental health screenings and referrals between area health departments and area behavioral health providers.
2) To support the development and implementation of culturally adapted mental health interventions that address gaps in the service continuum for refugees.
Empowering refugees and their families to achieve well-being by increasing awareness of community resources and accessibility to physical and behavioral health services.
