DeKalb CSB offers mental health outpatient and community support services for children and adolescents. Youth between the ages of three and eighteen are eligible for these services if assessed and determined to have a diagnosis which indicates emotional disturbance, mood disorder, behavioral disorder or some combination of these categories. Individuals who are significant in the child’s life, schooling or community are included as appropriate in the plan of care.
The Prevention and Early Intervention Program (PEIP) is an innovative, evidence-based program offered by DeKalb Community Service Board (CSB) which aims to assess, engage, support, and treat individuals ages 9-25 that are at ultra-high risk for developing a psychotic disorder or are in their first episode of psychosis.
The Emotional & Behavioral Support Services Program (EBSS) seeks to enhance the learning environments of schools by removing barriers to learning and actively promoting the emotional well-being of students through effective health promotion and intervention in the schools.
