Supporting Youth and Their Families in Fairfax County

Over the recent years, we have seen an increase in awareness and conversation around youth mental health issues. While the terminology can be far-reaching and feel like a topic too big to tackle, the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) is stepping up to the demand and offering robust services to support the needs of youth and their families. The below information will guide you through symptoms to look for, services available, and how to contact CSB’s Youth and Family team to take advantage of high-quality, evidence-based support that’s close to home.

Sometimes symptoms of mental health and substance abuse issues can go under the radar because they appear to be common behavior. Reach out for help if you or a young person close to you is experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Consistent Difficulty Sleeping
  • Worry or Excessive Fear
  • Impulsive or Disruptive on a Regular Basis
  • Moody, Sad, or Irritable
  • Not Eating or Obsessive Dieting
  • Difficulty Maintaining Friendships
  • Drug and Alcohol Use Concerns
  • School Refusal or Attendance Issues
  • Missing Curfew and/or Running Away
  • Isolating to their Bedroom

This is not an exhaustive list of all symptoms of concern. If a young person in your life is exhibiting problematic behavior, it may be time to utilize professional behavioral health services such as those offered at the Fairfax-Falls Church CSB.
