In 1993, Georgia General Assembly legislated the formation of regional and community service boards (CSBs). On July 1, 1994, twenty-eight CSBs succeeded county boards of health as the community-based, public providers of behavioral health and/or intellectual/developmental disability services. The General Assembly assigned budget and planning responsibility to the regional boards while services are provided by the Community Service Boards.
CCCSB is funded by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) through the Cobb Regional Board for Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Addictive Disease; Cobb County; Medicaid/Medicare; Vocational Rehabilitation; grants; private pay; and donations. The CCCSB is governed by a board of directors made up of key leaders in the community. The agency’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) oversees responsibilities for day to day operations.
