PPS: Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse

County agencies are required to submit data to the Program Participation System (PPS) describing all enrolled mental health and substance use consumers, the services they receive, and their functional status.

We use this data to evaluate the performance and capacity of Wisconsin's behavioral health system.

PPS redesign

We are redesigning parts of PPS. This project includes merging the mental health and substance use modules into one module.

After the transition, the PPS Portal reports will no longer be available through the ForwardHealth website. Please watch for emails from DHS and SAS for training and news regarding this change.
