adult community support services (css)
Community Support Services (CSS) provide a variety of supports and services to support adults who have a severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). This program provides effective integrated and coordinated treatment within the individual's home community to assist with mental health conditions such as major depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. These services are proven to increase ability to live independently, develop skills to maintain employment, build social relationships and a sense of community, and prevent the need for hospitalization. These services are intended to be convenient for our clients and can support them in their home, community, and even their place of employment.
Each client drives their own treatment, expressing their preferences, focusing on their strengths, and working collaboratively with their treatment team to develop an individualized treatment plan intended to get the best results.
These services are for persons over the age of 18 with specific diagnoses that can benefit from additional assistance outside of the clinic setting. Individuals may receive a variety of services in the home, at work/school, and other places in the community as determined by their specific needs. Therapeutic Case Managers are an extension of the medical and clinical providers in the clinics, and can assist people in managing and eliminating their symptoms as well as supporting them as they improve their daily living skills. Case managers can also coordinate care, at the client's preference, with family members, employers, educators, physicians, other agencies, and other persons connected to the client.
