Comprehensive Community Services (CCS)

Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) is a program that helps individuals of all ages live their best life by providing supports that address their unique needs related to mental health and substance use. CCS is intended to assist individuals who are in need of care outside of inpatient settings, but who may have ongoing needs that, if left unaddressed, could result in hospitalizations during times of crisis. As of December 30, 2019, the latest data available, 8,897 individuals were enrolled in CCS.

Available in 67 counties and three tribes

CCS became available to counties and tribes in Wisconsin in 2005. In 2014, the state provided counties and tribes a financial incentive to form regions to increase access to CCS and create efficiencies in administration. These regions cover 67 counties and three tribes.

Eligibility for CCS

Eligibility for CCS is determined through a screening process conducted by the county-based or tribal-based provider organization. Contact your county or tribe to learn if they offer CCS. This screening process is repeated annually to assess the individual's progress.
