CSB Wins National Honor for Mental Health First Aid!


On March 1, 2013, the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board was named by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare as one of this year’s “Impact Award” honorees for our Mental Health First Aid program. According to the NCCBH:

Each year, the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare honors distinguished behavioral healthcare individuals and organizations that have set themselves apart through its Impact Awards. Honorees reflect the most innovative and inspirational work happening in behavioral healthcare organizations across the country.  

The designation of “Program of Significance” for the Mental Health First Aid Award recognizes outstanding efforts in delivering Mental Health First Aid training classes based on organizational commitment, extent of reach, community impact, and program sustainability.

Mental Health First Aid is a two-day course that teaches a 5-step action plan offering initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in crisis, and connecting them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.
