Virginia Regulatory Town Hall
Department of Health Professions
Guidance Document Change: Consistent with the established position of the NASW, the Board considers “conversion therapy” or “sexual orientation change efforts” to be services that have the potential to be a danger to clients, especially minors. Thus, under regulations governing practitioners licensed or registered by the Board, practicing conversion therapy/sexual orientation change efforts with minors could result in a finding of misconduct and disciplinary action against the licensee or registrant.

PLEASE ban Conversion Therapy

As a Christian I implore you to ban Conversion Therapy!  It is extremely harmful and there are no benefits from it whatsoever.  We are all God's children, made in His image and He makes no mistakes.  LGBTQ individuals are NOT mistakes, they are exactly as God has created them to be.  Please do not let this abuse of our children continue.
