Our Children, Our Future


With the rapid and dramatic state changes that are impacting services provided to our children and families, public policy development and advocacy is taking on an even more important role. TVC, through its leadership, has established itself as a strong and non-partisan voice for the rights of children’s mental health. TVC attempts to become knowledgeable about changes and policies and laws that will affect our children, to speak out forcefully on these issues, and to educate our legislators and other public officials about the impact their decisions will have on children and families.
