About the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board
The Fairfax-Falls Church CSB is the public agency that plans, organizes and provides services for people in our community who have mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or intellectual disability. The CSB also provides early intervention services for infants and toddlers who have developmental delays.
We are one of 40 Community Services Board in the Commonwealth of Virginia. State law requires every jurisdiction to have a CSB. We operate as part of Fairfax County government's human services system.
Our staff and contracted services providers include psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, counselors, therapists, case managers, peer specialists, and “behind the scenes” administrative and support staff. We partner with community organizations, faith communities, businesses, schools and other local government agencies in many ways to provide the services people need, and to be good neighbors in the community.

Who is eligible for CSB services?
Our CSB serves residents of Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church.
The CSB provides services for people of all ages who have mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or intellectual disability, and for infants and toddlers with developmental delays. Women and girls who are pregnant and intravenous drug users have priority for substance use disorder services. Most CSB services are primarily for people whose conditions seriously impact their daily functioning. However, anyone with a related concern may contact the CSB for help in finding appropriate treatment and resources.
