Wellness Resources


  • CSB launched its “BeWell” initiative in 2015 to help improve overall health outcomes for people with serious mental illness. Integration of primary and behavioral health care is a strategic priority for the CSB. Our goal is that everyone served by the CSB will have access to primary care as well as behavioral health care services with a focus on overall improved health and wellness. Learn more about the BeWell program.

Peer-Run Recovery and Drop-In Centers

  • Recovery and drop-in centers are places where people with mental illness can stop by to enjoy a cup of coffee, socialize or just hang out in a low stress, low demand environment. Centers are typically staffed with volunteers and paid peer-staff who ensure a safe, comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Learn more about Drop-In Centers in Fairfax County.

Peer Support Services

  • Peer Support Services can help you build a bridge to recovery.
  • A Certified Peer Specialist is someone who has lived experience with mental health challenges, is now in stable recovery, and is trained to help others on their own journey to recovery.
  • Meet with a Certified Peer Specialist who can help you find your own way to wellness.

Wellness Recovery Action Plans

  • "WRAP for me is about personal responsibility. I can just let my ‘symptoms’ take over my life. Or I can take personal responsibility, use my WRAP, and do what I need to do to take care of myself and feel better."
  • WRAP stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan. A WRAP is something you create for yourself to take control over your own wellness. Learn more about WRAP.

Community Support Groups

  • Many excellent support groups are available in our community. Some are offered by the CSB. Other groups are offered by nonprofit and community organizations.
