community service boards
Community Service Boards
  • CSBs are the local government agencies responsible for mental health, mental retardation and substance abuse services for citizens in their communities.
  • CSBs are mandated by the Code of Virginia (37.2-500) to provide “core” public behavioral healthcare services to children and adults meeting specific eligibility criteria.

CSB Core Services
  • Core services as defined by code consist of emergency services and care management “subject to the availability of funds”.
  • Virginia code also says that other core services may include inpatient, out-patient, day support, residential, prevention, early intervention and other services and supports that are necessary to assist citizens.
csb required roles
CSB Required Roles

In order to ensure that the best interests of children, families and the state are served, CSBs are required by code to fulfill these roles:

  • Providers of core services and supports
  • Mangers of Care and advocates
  • Gatekeeper-local point of accountability and responsibility for services and resources

System of Care


  • Comprehensive array of services and supports
  • Individualized service plans specifically tailored to children and family’s strengths and needs
  • Families, youth and any other person that the family invites are full participants in all aspects and the planning and delivery of services
  • Integrated services (providers and family- all on same page)
  • Care management provided
  • Early identification and intervention
  • Receipt of services without regard to race, religion, national origin, gender, etc.
wraparound approach
Wraparound Approach

Wraparound is a family-centered and strength-based approach that utilizes a highly individualized planning process to help families achieve important outcomes by helping them meet their needs both within and outside of formal human services systems while they remain in their homes and communities.

icc values
ICC Values

We believe that

  • All children deserve safe, nurturing and permanent homes and permanent family connections.
  • Child safety is first and foremost.
  • Parents have the right and responsibility to raise their own children.
  • The family and youth perspective must be honored at all times and service plan must reflect the family’s values and preferences.
  • Coordinating community services to transition or maintain children in their homes is a public responsibility and that public agencies should serve the community in this role.
