VIENNA, Va (WDVM) — Unanet is giving $30,000 to a Northern Virginia non-profit that provides mental health and domestic violence advocacy to fund teen mental health initiatives for the next three years.

The Women’s Center has been providing mental health services in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. for 47 years.

The $30,000 will go towards hiring more therapists so they can focus on teens and their mental health. Ceo Rachna Krishnan says the center has seen a 21% increase in requests for adolescent counseling services in the past year.

“The pandemic has had, and a terrible impact in so many different ways, but having two teenagers at home, I have seen the devastating impact they’ve had on our adolescence and, and our teenagers,” said Krishnan.
