WHO ARE THE COMMUNITY SERVICE BOARDS (CSBs)?

Community Service Boards (CSBs) are created in OCGA §37-2-6 et seq. as public corporations and instrumentalities of the state to provide services for mental illness, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and/or addictive diseases. There are 23 CSBs across Georgia with Boards of Directors appointed by the governing authorities of the counties within the CSB area.

As part of Georgia's Public Safety Net, CSBs serve eligible persons with serious mental illness, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and/or addictive diseases who have no insurance and limited to no means to pay for treatment. CSBs also serve persons with Medicaid. Individuals with other insurances are served based on the CSB's capacity and local need.
