Engaging parents, empowering youth, and building resiliency throughout the community of Hanover

What are Prevention and Education Services?

Prevention programming and related activities provide education, support and skill-building opportunities for Hanover County youth and their families. The goal of community education and prevention services is to “keep healthy people healthy.” Programs promote resiliency and well-being through parent education, after-school programming, and skill-building workshops for children, teens and adults.

Same Day Access

Individuals seeking help for mental health or substance use concerns, or who want to begin the process of accessing services related to a developmental disability, do not need an appointment.

The CSB’s Ashland Office at 12300 Washington Highway has walk-in hours from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday (except County Holidays). 

Individuals will be able to speak with a staff member face to face. After eligibility & other screening, he or she will receive an initial
comprehensive assessment that same day (please plan for this to take approximately 2 hours). Within seven business days of the initial visit, individuals will have their first treatment appointment and/or a plan for accessing resources and/or services.

CSB staff conducting the assessment are trained to assess for substance use disorders as well as mental health and co-occurring disorders. Trained staff will also be available to assess and consult related to developmental disabilities.

To expedite the intake process for developmental disability services, individuals will need a psychological evaluation. If one has been completed, individuals should bring a copy; if not, staff will provide referral information for other providers that can complete this evaluation.

You can also download the HCCSB Information Form to complete and bring with you.

Mental Health Matters!

You are more likely to encounter someone — a friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Hanover Community Services offers a variety of programs to help you to recognize and respond to these situations. Call (804) 365-4228 or email malambert@hanovercounty.gov for upcoming course dates, or to arrange to bring any of these programs to your Hanover organization. View programs

We can show your how.
