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.

What are Behavioral Health Wellness Services?

Activities and programs promote individual, family and community behavioral health wellness. Our services include:

  • Community education about mental health, suicide, substance misuse prevention, adverse childhood experiences and trauma.
  • Consultation with parents and other professionals
  • Parent education
  • Youth prevention programs
  • Dissemination of safe storage and disposal tools including medication disposal pouches, medication lock boxes and gun locks

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. 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.

The Behavioral Health Wellness team coordinates and implements programs and community-wide strategies that promote resilience and well-being.
