Community Support Programs (CSPs)

Community Support Programs (CSPs) are for adults living with a serious and persistent mental illness. CSPs provide coordinated professional care and treatment in the community that includes a broad range of services to meet individual's unique personal needs, reduce symptoms, and promote recovery.  CSPs are designed to be capable of providing services that can be tailored to the individual’s needs at any given time, ranging from minimal to intensive, or a level that might otherwise require care in a hospital setting.

Eligibility for CSPs

Eligibility for services is based on a qualifying mental health diagnosis that imposes a disability in daily living and a risk of a continuing pattern of hospital or institutional care.

Client rights

There are rules to ensure the rights of program participants are protected. The Client Rights Office is responsible for the implementation and oversight of patient rights for individuals receiving services for mental illness in Wisconsin.

Contact CSP staff

The Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services oversees CSPs for the Department of Health Services. If you have general questions about CSPs, please call 608-266-2717.
