Community Services Boards
Community Services Boards function as service providers, community educators, organizers and planners, and advisors to their local governments. They work to enable individuals with mental illnesses, mental retardation and substance abuse needs to access services in state mental health and mental retardation facilities through preadmission screening, case management, and discharge planning.
If you or a family member need emergency mental health care, you should contact the Community Services Boards in your area.
