Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare (BRBH) is one of forty Community Services Boards established under the Code of Virginia to provide comprehensive services for individuals who have mental health disorders, intellectual disability, or substance use disorders. We are charged also with continuously monitoring and evaluating our services to ensure their cost effectiveness and applicability to current citizen needs. BRBH operates multiple programs throughout the Roanoke Valley with over 400 employees working to provide or support our services. We are proud to have served our community for over forty years.
Under contract with the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), BRBH operates within a service area comprised of the Cities of Roanoke and Salem, and the Counties of Botetourt, Craig, and Roanoke. Funding to support our services comes from a combination of state and local government appropriations, federal and private grants, and reimbursement from federal agencies, client insurers, and private payment.
