Effective at 5 p.m. on March 27, 2020, all Fairfax County buildings are closed to the public; CSB Emergency Services on the Merrifield Center's Lower Level remains open.
If possible, before coming to the Merrifield Center, please call ahead to Emergency Services to see if you are able to be seen via telehealth services – phone or video.
During this time, CSB has transitioned mainly to telehealth services via Zoom for Healthcare, by phone or video.
We want to hear from you, but please call rather than email.
Internet emails to and from CSB staff are not encrypted nor on a secure network. This means that the CSB cannot ensure that emails we receive will remain private and confidential. If you need to communicate protected health information (things like your name, address, diagnosis), we recommend that you call us, rather than email us, to better ensure your privacy and confidentiality.
The CSB will not use email to respond to questions that involve personally identifiable health information, so please include a phone number where we can reach you to discuss your specific situation. We will use email to answer general questions and to provide links to more information.
