County Receives Additional Funding to Serve Seriously Mentally Ill

Prince William County Community Services has offered an Intensive Community Treatment, or ICT, program for the seriously mentally ill since 2008. The program is currently funded to help and treat 48 people. Another 26 are on the waiting list for services. The Prince William Board of County Supervisors recently voted to accept $850,000 from the Virginia Department of Health and Developmental Services to expand coverage for the mentally ill under the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). According to its website, the administration “leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. SAMHSA's mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities.”...Click below for the full article:

CSB joins Governor's 100 Day Integrated Housing Challenge:

  • On June 19, Governor McAuliffe announced a 100-day challenge to kick off the Commonwealth's Housing and Supportive Services (HSS) initiative to increase integrated, independent housing options for people with an intellectual or developmental disability in the Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads and Richmond regions. With the help of HSS, teams from the three regions involved in the challenge are developing a set of goals that they can reach within the 100 days of the challenge. PWC Community Services is part of the Northern Virginia regional team that seeks to identify individuals who want to live in their own homes, and to expand community-based independent and integrated housing opportunities and supportive services for people with disabilities. Stay tuned for announcements about information sessions and efforts to identify individuals in the target population who want integrated housing. For more information, visit HSS' Northern Virginia page and HSS' main page.
