About

"Creigh is a progressive champion with a track record of delivering results on the issues that matter to us most—like fighting for gun violence reform, protecting abortion access, and fixing our broken mental healthcare system. Passing more bills than any other member of the General Assembly, Creigh is the most effective legislator in the Commonwealth."

Mental Health Reform

"After losing his son to mental illness, Creigh dedicated his life to reforming our broken mental health system. Creigh fought to establish the Behavioral Health Commission, implemented and expanded the use of mobile crisis services, and successfully advocated for historic, comprehensive investments into our mental health system—like attracting new mental health professionals and increasing hospital bed capacity for those in need of care. His life saving work has earned him recognition both nationally and across the Commonwealth as a foremost champion for mental health reform."

Healthcare

"Creigh believes that everyone deserves access to the medical care they need when they need it, and he’s been on the forefront of expanding healthcare accessibility and affordability in the Commonwealth. That’s why Creigh led the fight to expand Medicaid to over 400,000 Virginians, lower the cost of insurance premiums, and cap the cost of life-saving prescription medications. And when the Charlottesville area faced skyrocketing health care costs—the highest in the nation—Creigh worked with constituents to improve access to affordable health plans and to demand more transparency and accountability from insurance companies."
