A former Saxe resident is now leading a new psychiatric residential treatment facility set to open in Halifax County.

Amanda Moseley is CEO of Southstone Behavioral Health care (SBH), which is seeking to open as a psychiatric residential treatment facility (PRTF) for adolescents with emotional and behavioral problems that are negatively impacting their daily lives. 

According to Moseley, “SBH will provide quality care with a select focus on issues of trauma and attachment in childhood. Specialty therapeutic, educational and recreational services will be provided in an in-patient setting by licensed professionals.”

Moseley lived with her step-father and mother, Stan and Barbara Copal, in Charlotte County in the 1980s in Saxe. 

“My father and step-mother, Mike and Nan Moseley, live in Campbell County in Brookneal. I lived most of my life in Brookneal but moved to Saxe in my late teens and finished high school at William Campbell even after moving to Charlotte County,” Moseley said. “I attended undergraduate school at Radford University studying psychology and sociology and completed my graduate studies at Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, NC with (a master’s degree) in counseling.”

SBH is set to open in October.

“I was a program supervisor in a therapeutic group home and an outpatient counselor in a community agency setting in North Carolina prior to returning to Virginia about 15 years ago,” she said. “ In Virginia, I have worked for the … Department of Juvenile Justice and the office of children’s services in both Campbell and Appomattox counties. For nine years, from 2007 to 2016, I worked for two other programs (like Southstone) in Virginia in the role of director of business development, responsible for referral development and public relations.”

Moseley is serving her fourth term on the board of directors for the Virginia Juvenile Justice Association. “I am also the chair for the board of the directors for the not-for-profit organization, Harvest Outreach Center.”

The Lynchburg Area Counselor’s Association named Mosley the Community Advocate of the Year in 2015.

“We are hopeful to start hiring teachers, mental health counselors, nurses and therapists in late summer,” she said of SBH.
