  • Community Support Program

The Community Support Program, or CSP, of Pennsylvania is an alliance of mental health consumers, family members, and professionals working together to aid adults with severe mental illnesses and co-occurring disorders to live successfully in the community.

The cornerstone of the Community Support Program is the integration of natural supports into the lives of those with mental illness. Help make a meaningful difference in the lives of consumers with serious mental illness by becoming involved with a local or regional CSP Committee.

Community Support Program meetings offer a forum setting in Pennsylvania for consumers, family members, and professionals to speak their beliefs and values and promote system changes. These meetings have helped shape the way treatment services are delivered to consumers, improved the public's understanding that consumers and family members should be regarded as people first, and advocated for the implementation of quality treatments that support the recovery of those with serious mental illness. 

Regional CSP

Regional Committees:

The Community Support Program has a committee for each of the six regions in Pennsylvania. The regional committees are made up of individuals who are involved with their local CSP committees. 

Both the regional and local CSP committees provide a community-based line to CSP principles, education, information sharing, and for collective input on major successes and concerns regarding community mental health services. These concerns and other recommendations are shared with the OMHSAS Adult Advisory Committee and may also be shared with county MH/DS offices and organizations. 

The CSP Format filters information from the state adult advisory committee to the regional and local committees and also filters up the concerns, information, and ideas of the local committees.
