The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) oversees public behavioral health services statewide and endorses a regional management approach for coordinated service delivery among Community Services Boards (CSBs) in Virginia. CSBs are the local behavioral health agencies that serve as the point of entry into publicly-funded services for mental health, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse disorders.
DBHDS Region 2, for the provision of Behavioral Health Services and Developmental Services , consists of localities served by:
- City of Alexandria CSB
- Arlington County CSB
- Fairfax-Falls Church CSB
- Loudoun County CSB
- Prince William County CSB
The Northern Virginia Regional Projects Office (NVRPO) was created to manage and have oversight of regional initiatives that serve consumers of the regional CSBs and one state facility (the Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute). Since the Regional Projects Office is not a stand-alone entity, these projects, including the Regional Projects Office, are attached to one of the regional CSBs.
Each month the regional projects office holds a collaborative meeting at the Chantilly office. Learn more on our Regional Utilization Group page.
