Services are provided by a team consisting of a case manager, psychiatrist, nurse, mental health technician, and peer support specialist.
Each participant has access to a Peer Support Specialist, an individual also recovering from a mental illness who has been specially trained to help others through the recovery process. Peer Support Specialists model effective coping techniques and self-help strategies based on their own recovery experience. They offer an expertise that professional training cannot replace.
Support Employment services are available for participants interested in obtaining competitive employment. Through Indicidual Placement and Support, participants can go to school, volunteer, or get a job. Motivation to work is a strong predictor of success and can help individuals overcome barriers as a result of their mental illness.
Referrals must come from the Aging and Disability Resources Center of Western Wisconsin. If you, or a loved one, are interested in services, please call 1-800-500-3910. Participation in CSP is voluntary unless committed through a court order. There is no cost to participate.
