"Why care?" graphic

May 4, 2022
Nearly 1 in 5 people experience a mental health concern each year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Mental illness, including depression, substance use disorders, anxiety, or psychosis can happen to anyone. Take this opportunity this month to learn more about increasing awareness of mental health, healthy habits, and how to protect and maintain emotional health and well-being. Help shine a light on mental health and awareness and work to eliminate stigma surrounding mental illness. How to take action: Enroll in one of CSB’s Mental Health First Aid courses. Mental Health First Aid is a public education program offered by the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board that can help communities understand mental illnesses, seek timely intervention, and save lives. Mental health first aid introduces risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, helps build understanding of importance of early intervention and teaches participants how to help someone in crisis. The CSB offers courses for adults, older adults, people who work with youth, higher education, and those who serve in public safety roles. Take CSB’s REVIVE! courses train people on what to do, and not to do, in an overdose situation, how to administer life-saving Naloxone and what to do afterwards. The courses are free, about an hour long, and offered across Fairfax County and the Cities of Falls Church and Fairfax year-round. Take one of CSB’s free, confidential online mental health screenings. Completing these anonymous screenings will help you determine if your recent thoughts or behaviors may be associated with a common, treatable mental health issue. Practice healthy self-care strategies to improve your mental health: Exercise. Even a small amount can make a big difference in your day. Connect with someone. Make a phone call or visit with a friend or family member.  Start a cycle of encouragement; tell others what you appreciate about them. Listen to music that inspires and motivates you. Write a poem on something you care about, or an article on something you feel is interesting. Join our conversation on mental health by signing up to receive CSB News, follow the CSB on Twitter and “like” the CSB on Facebook. Children's Mental Health Awareness and Acceptance Week is May 1 - 7.   Get involved, learn more, help your community and reduce stigma. Help is available, treatment works and people do recover. Call the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board for guidance and resources at 703-383-8500 (TTY 711). CSB Emergency Services are available 24/7 at 703-573-5679 (TTY 711).

Photos of teens and min-grant awards

December 6, 2021
The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) has currently awarded mini-grants for 10 projects, all planned and led by young people, which aim to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues among their peers. Each of the projects will be implemented by August 15th, 2022. Funding for the CSB's mini-grant program for youth-led projects is from a regional suicide prevention grant in collaboration with the Suicide Prevention Alliance of Northern VA (SPAN). "The purpose of this initiative is for youth to lead the way in helping their peers and community to recognize a mental health concern in themselves or in someone else, and to not hesitate to get help," says Marla Zometsky, Manager of CSB Wellness, Health Promotion and Prevention Services. The grants were awarded to:   Diana Morales: T Vape Frost Minds Matter: Frost Minds Matter’s Buttons for Change Lydia Perkins: Portable Comfort Classroom Strawbridge Square Community Center: Mental Health/Suicide Awareness Prevention Walk Psi Alpha Alpha chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc: Manup Mental Awareness Nami Northern Virginia: Youth Fest 2022/ Wellness Kits Derek Liu: Youth Mental Health Documentary Project Enterprise Community Development (ECD): Wake Up / Step Up Reston Youth Empowerment Ava Belmont: The Mindfulness Spot Jack Barnes: Buttons Unite Students "One in every five people in the U.S. experiences a mental health disorder every year," says Zometsky. "Mental health disorders are common and treatable, but people are often reluctant seek help because of the misunderstanding and stigma.  For youth, studies show that stigma, trust and confidentiality are barriers to help-seeking. Youth are powerful leaders in overcoming the barriers to suicide prevention as they help to create messages and strategies that resonate with their peers.  Their involvement has a profound impact on the culture of their schools and communities, ultimately leading to the social change that can help to increase help-seeking, reduce stigma and prevent suicide. The CSB and SPAN seek to support young people to be the driving force for a positive culture change to eliminate the stigma around mental illness. Interested in applying for a Youth-Led Mini Grant – look for the next opportunity in Fall 2022.
