Creating Opportunities: A Plan for Advancing Community-Focused Services in Virginia is DBHDS’s strategic planning initiative to 1) build on and continue progress in advancing the DBHDS vision, 2) support the Governor’s expressed intentions to achieve a Commonwealth of Opportunity for all Virginians, and 3) promote services system efficiencies in a manner that is effective and responsive to the needs of individuals receiving services and their families.  Please click here for the Creating Opportunities Implementation Plan.

Implementation teams were then formed to assist in developing achievable and impactful objectives and priority actions needed to accomplish the initiatives. Over 200 individuals have been involved in this planning effort including representatives from DBHDS central office, state hospitals and training centers, community services boards, private providers, consumers, various departments of state government and other stakeholders.

As the process continues to move forward, more information on the process and outcomes can be found below.
