We are one of 27 Community Services Boards Georgia. State law requires every Region to have a CSB. We operate as a contracted agent of the state to provide these services. Our staff and contracted service providers include, but are not limited to, psychiatrists, registered nurses, client support workers, counselors, therapists, case managers, peer specialists, and administrative staff. We partner with community organizations, faith communities, businesses, schools and other local governmental agencies in many ways to provide the service needed.

Anger management refers to a process. It can help people identify stressors. People learn steps to help them stay calm in anger management. They may then handle tense situations in a constructive, positive way. The purpose of anger management is to help a person decrease anger. It reduces the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It is generally impossible to avoid all people and settings that incite anger. But a person may learn to control reactions and respond in a socially appropriate manner
