A Letter from Our CEO

Dear Reader,

Thank you for considering Horizon in your search for behavioral health and wellness services.

It is our honor to serve the residents of the City of Lynchburg and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell, with life changing services to improve behavioral health outcomes across the lifespan. Horizon is here to serve you so that you can live confidently and independently in your community, ensure your children are given every opportunity to exceed as they chase their dreams, and help your family overcome obstacles that stand in the way of a safe, healthy, and happy future.

Our talented and caring Horizon team, an active Board of Directors, and the support of esteemed community partners have been foundational to the positive outcomes achieved over the past 53 years. With each year, we strive to advance our vision for a community who can confidently place their trust in us to provide behavioral healthcare services that are accessible, consumer-centered, cost effective, and outcome-based. 

We hold true to our founding values by supporting each individual and family's right to participate in decisions affecting his or her life and providing timely services in the least-restrictive setting which are accessible, affordable, efficient and adaptable to each individual's needs. We will continue to build upon a culture of healing within the resilient communities we serve by fighting stigma that prevents individuals from receiving the help and care that they deserve. 

I am forever grateful for the privilege to represent this great organization as Chief Executive Officer.  It is my genuine honor to represent people who are saving lives, curing people, keeping them well and in the community. I would like to share a special thanks to our valued community partners who have supported us in our mission for 54 years. It is together, that we will overcome challenges that lie ahead with heightened motivation to pursue a bright future on the horizon.

With every best wish and kind regard,

Melissa Lucy, Chief Executive Officer
