Community Support Programs for Persons with Severe and Persistent Mental Illnesses in Wisconsin


The Bureau of Prevention, Treatment and Recovery, Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, programmatically and fiscally supports Community Support Programs (CSPs) for persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses in the community.

A Community Support Program or CSP is a coordinated care and treatment program which provides a range of treatment, rehabilitation, and support services through an identified treatment program and staff to ensure ongoing therapeutic involvement, individualized treatment, rehabilitation, and support services.

Wisconsin Client Data Summary

The bureau of Prevention, Treatment and Recovery annually collects data from Community Support Programs (CSP's), and prepares an annual report as part of the state oversight activities as required in SS. 51.421. The data follows this summary.

This data should not be read as a presentation of absolute numbers since it uses point-in-time data. The report indicates the treatment, services, and limited client trends within these programs, and contains the most accurate information currently available.

Startup funding is available for counties interested in starting up new CSP and Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) programs. (see the memorandum below)
