|Welcome to Cumberland Mountain
Community Service Board's website. As one of forty
(40) Community Service Boards in Virginia, we offer a
comprehensive array of services in mental
substance abuse, and
We are located in Southwestern Virginia, about
equidistant between Roanoke, Virginia and Knoxville,
Tennessee. Our service area consists of Buchanan,
Russell, and Tazewell Counties (approximately 1500 square
miles) with a total population of 106,400. CMCSB is a very progressive
and innovative agency operating twenty-one different locations within
the three counties. We also are one of the largest employers
in Southwestern Virginia, with approximately 480 full-time,
part-time, and client-employees on our payroll.
As part of the Appalachian region, our economy is influenced by the environment in which it is located. We strive to overcome the barriers of a depressed economy and high unemployment. In doing so, we have developed a number of successful businesses which employ our mentally disabled consumers, such as Cumberland Food Services, and the Thangs Store.
Many of Cumberland's programs have received local, regional, state, and national recognition for their innovation. We have also received attention for our leadership in regional efforts in coordination with other Community Services Boards, area agencies on aging, public health departments, and local school systems.
|We have been an innovator in the
application of telepsychiatry with the Appal-Link Project. This project uses
state-of-the-art interactive video and audio links to
provide mental health services in rural Southwestern
Virginia. Our Prevention
such as Mountain Youth Drama, highlight creative approaches
with the youth of our area.
Our programs impact newborn infants to the elderly, and involve consumers with every possible mental health, substance abuse and mental retardation diagnosis and disability.
These are but a few of the many specialized and innovative programs operated by Cumberland Mountain C.S.B. Please browse our entire web site. Here you will not only find out about the programs, locations and services of Cumberland Mountain Community Services Board, but we will also provide you with a wide variety of information and education on mental health, substance abuse and mental retardation. Some of this information will be located here, but we also have a large number of "hot links" to extensive related topics. We want this site to be a learning experience for you.
