Comprehensive support for children, adults and families.

Our educational, after-school and residential programs help children and adults overcome negative behaviors and mental health issues. We strive to provide tools and resources that lead to fulfilling, productive lives.

Crisis Stabilization Unit

When youth experience a traumatic event or recurring feelings of depression, hopelessness or anxiety, a crisis cycle may develop that puts them at risk of being removed from their family and community. Our Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) is here for youth and their families when life circumstances become too tough to handle.

An eight-bed residential CSU on our campus offers short-term placement in support of youth ages 5 to 17 who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The CSU operates in partnership with Richmond Behavioral Health Authority and the Region IV Community Service Boards. It is the first facility of its kind in Central Virginia.

The majority of youth served by the CSU are diverted from costly hospitalization.

Take a virtual tour of the CSU.

Community Stabilization

Community Stabilization is a community-based, short-term mental health service for non-hospitalized individuals of all ages experiencing an acute crisis of a psychiatric nature. The service provides clinical support to those at risk of hospitalization and/or admission to a residential treatment facility. We also mobilize the resources of the community support system, family members, and others for ongoing rehabilitation and recovery.

We operate through a trauma-informed approach. Strength-based and person-centered, this approach highlights clients’ resilience, capacity to problem-solve, and ability to engage in post traumatic growth. Our clinicians use evidenced-based interventions with emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and skill development to avert future crises. Services may be provided in the client’s home, the home of the client’s family or primary caregiver, or other community-based programs licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.
