CSB Services - Employment and Day Services
Employment or meaningful activity is as important for everyone. The CSB's Employment and Day Services provide multiple levels of supported employment and day support services for people with developmental disabilities, serious mental illness, and/or substance use disorders.
The CSB coordinates with partner agencies (including the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services and many others), private businesses, and nonprofit community organizations to provide these services.
- Employment services may include job placement (which for some individuals may be in a group or facility-based setting) and employment service coordination. Depending on an individual’s needs, various levels of ongoing support can be provided.
- Self-Directed services help people with developmental disabilities develop important vocational and life skills through activities they choose.
- Day support services are day activities that may include enhancing personal activities of daily living, developing pre-vocational skills, medical care, behavioral interventions, socialization, communication, fine and gross motor skills, daily and community living skills, and possibly limited remunerative employment.
- Psychosocial Rehabilitation provides life skills development support and services for individuals with mental illness or co-occurring illnesses or diagnoses during periods of transition. Services include psychoeducational groups, social skills training, services for individuals with co‐occurring disorders, relapse prevention, training in problem solving and independent living skills, health literacy, pre‐vocational services and community integration.
To find out about these services, please speak to your case manager or support coordinator.
