Connecting People to Resources for Recovery and Wellness
CSB launched its “BeWell” initiative in 2015 to help improve
overall health outcomes for people with serious mental illness.
Integration of primary and behavioral health care is a strategic priority for the
CSB. Our goal is that everyone served by the CSB will have access
to primary care as well as behavioral health care services with a
focus on overall improved health and wellness. Learn more about the
Peer-Run Recovery and Drop-In Centers
Recovery and drop-in centers are places where people with mental
illness can stop by to enjoy a cup of coffee, socialize or just
hang out in a low stress, low demand environment. Centers are
typically staffed with volunteers and paid peer-staff who ensure a
safe, comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Learn more about Drop-In
Centers in Fairfax County.
Peer Support Services
Peer Support Services can help you build a bridge to recovery.
A Certified Peer Specialist is someone who has lived experience
with mental health challenges, is now in stable recovery, and is
trained to help others on their own journey to recovery.
Meet with a Certified Peer Specialist who can help you find your
own way to wellness.

Wellness Recovery Action Plans
"WRAP for me is about personal responsibility. I can just let
my ‘symptoms’ take over my life. Or I can take personal
responsibility, use my WRAP, and do what I need to do to take care
of myself and feel better."
WRAP stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan. A WRAP is something
you create for yourself to take control over your own wellness.
Learn more about WRAP.
