Dr. Oberschneider's article on "13 Reasons Why" was published in USA Today! Teen bullying and teen suicide are, unfortunately, very real problems, and Northern Virginia is not immune to the problem having lost several teens over the years.

John Whitbeck, Loudoun County's leading mental health and education attorney, will be presenting on the various aspects of special education within the school system.

Dr. Michael Oberschneider, our director, collaborated on an interesting and important project with Lucidious and the Loudoun School of Ballet. Teen suicide rates have increased over the years, and we hope this project and effort makes a difference -- even if the message just reaches and helps one person who is struggling with depression. We hope to see you at the performance!
