Mental Health in City of Fairfax

Fairfax has a strong local economy with less than 6 percent of the population falling below poverty levels. This may be due to the fact that almost 60 percent of the city's residents over age 25 hold a college degree.2 Yet, some residents of the city struggle to maintain a home and pay their bills. The Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter offers these families a safe place to live as they work to get back on their feet. Operated by Fairfax County, the shelter provides meals, clothing and transportation services as well. All adults are expected to work, and all children are required to attend school. For more details about the shelter, call 703-324-9492.3

Workshops at local schools teach educators and students about bullying and how to appropriately address bullying situations. FPY also conducts outreach programs to educate the community about suicide and its warning signs. Call 703-324-7034 for more information about FPY's programs.4

Dozens of organizations in Fairfax County provide housing and assistance to people with disabilities. In order to ensure these residents become a part of their neighborhoods and communities, the county began the Good Neighbor Initiative. As part of this program, organizations that provide community housing to disabled residents agree to provide opportunities for residents to engage in neighborhood and community events. Residents are encouraged to engage with neighbors in social activities, and members of the community are encouraged to visit residents at home, just as they would any other neighbor. Additional details about the initiative are available by calling 703-324-7006. 5
