Community Support Program – The Project Access, Inc. Community Support Program is certified by the State of Wisconsin and partners with the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division.
Per DHS 63, Community Support Program (CSP) is a coordinated care and treatment program for individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness. Such a system is a proven means of preventing costly hospitalizations or incarceration while maximizing independent functioning and actualization of living independently in the community. The Project Access, Inc. Community Support Program (CSP) was developed in 1990 with the goal of helping to stabilize and rehabilitate seriously ill adults within community settings. In 1996, our program received its official CSP certification from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Through its close collaboration and partnership with the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, the program has evolved into a fully-integrated IDDT/ ACT (Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment and Assertive Community Treatment) model serving 200 Milwaukee County residents who suffer from a severe and persistent mental illness and a co-occurring disorder of substance use, offering such person-centered treatments and services as psychiatric services, case management services, crisis intervention, substance abuse treatment and referral, medical services, skilled nursing services, psychosocial/rehabilitative services, psychoeducation, employment related skill training, housing assistance services, financial management assistance services, transportation assistance, peer support, legal advocacy, and vocational/educational support services.
