The New York Times and other media outlets reported on a recent disturbing trend; most mass shooting assailants are under 21. Something needs to be done and soon!

Recognizing that inner-city communities are significantly underserved by institutional health care delivery systems, Dion Rambo founded the innovative TeleHealth Van concept. The TeleHealth Van delivers virtual mental health and shelter services directly to clients and patients most at risk. We are celebrating our 2 year anniversary and we have had over 15,000 sessions.
