RICHMOND, Virginia (AP)— Dominion Resources is donating $250,000 to support mental health treatment for children and adolescents in Southside and Southwest Virginia.

Dominion announced the gift to the Virginia Treatment Center for Children on Thursday.

Dominion says access to treatment is limited in Southside and Southwest Virginia. The funding will be used to support telemedicine programs in these areas.

Specialists with the center and the VCU Department of Psychiatry's Child and Adolescent Division will consult with pediatricians and treat patients remotely. They also will provide training to local mental health professionals.

The donation will be made through the Dominion Foundation.

Construction of the treatment center's new facility is expected to begin this fall. The new center is expected to be completed by fall 2016.
