Message from the CEO
To Our Stakeholders and Supporters:

Our staff of physicians, nurses, clinicians and support personnel is dedicated to helping our consumers and their families recover from these debilitating disabilities and resume productive lives within the community.
Annually the DeKalb CSB serves 11,000 of our fellow citizens and have witnessed countless individuals reclaiming lives once fractured by depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia; severely emotionally disturbed children reclaiming their childhood; families reclaiming stability and trust; adolescents reclaiming a sense of balance amid the stress of school and relationships; adults reclaiming victory over addiction; and older adults reclaiming joy and independence.
The core operating principles of the DeKalb CSB are:
- High Customer Service Standard
- Organizational and Clinical Excellence
- Operating Efficiency
- Cost Effective/Value – Added Service
These core operating principles are entrenched in every aspect of the agency’s operations as we strive to make the mission and vision a reality. The DeKalb CSB is committed to providing the very best care and proven treatments to help our consumers improve their lives while being good stewards of the funds and other resources entrusted to us to achieve this objective.
The DeKalb CSB is appreciative and grateful for the support of our funders and contributors, the DeKalb County government and our community partners. Without their support the programs and services offered by the DeKalb CSB would not be possible.
The ultimate goal of the DeKalb CSB is to ensure that persons challenged with behavioral health and developmental disabilities receive the appropriate care that allows them to continue productive lives in the community. We express our sincere thanks to all who join with us in the effort to make a brighter tomorrow for these individuals.
