The Community Support Program, (CSP), provides services for persons with severe mental illness as determined by diagnosis, duration and severity of illness. This program is driven by the principles of Recovery and Psychiatric Rehabilitation. Our services are highly individualized and focused on providing support and skill building that will increase clients ability to live, learn, work and socialize in the environment of their choice. We strive to assist clients to increase their success and satisfaction in all environments, with as little assistance form the mental health system as possible.
Services available within the CSP are:
The activities of the CSP Outpatient unit are treatment services which include: treatment planning, pharmacotherapy, individual and group therapy, illness education, medication checks, home visits, assessment. Our outpatient groups are focused on the Illness Management and Recovery model, an evidence-based practice. We also provide rehabilitation services which include: assessments, planning, skills teaching and/or skills programming. All clients in CSP services will receive outpatient services. The practitioner and client may decide that additional services may be needed and wanted. Additional services offered are Targeted Case Management and/or Therapeutic Rehabilitation Program.
Case Management Services:
Provides clients with access to services in several types of environments. The key to case management is the relationship that develops between provider and client through connecting skills. The case manager partners with the client to plan for services, link to services/resources and to advocate with and for the client. This service is often seen as the “glue that binds” in the often fragmented mental health system and other service systems.
Therapeutic Rehabilitation Program (TRP):
This is a day program that offers a place for clients to learn life management skills to increase success and satisfaction in a living, learning, work and/or social environment. The setting is purposefully informal to reduce the psychological distance between staff and participants. Members are continually encouraged to assume productive citizenship roles both within the TR and in the broader community.
Peer Support Services: NEW!
Peer Support Specialists provide individual peer counseling and peer support groups to individuals suffering from mental illness. Our Peer Support Specialists, while living in recovery, use the skills and knowledge developed from their own background of mental illness. They assist their peers in gaining skills to find their own pathway to recovery by helping them explore their living, social, intellectual, working, spiritual, and physical environments. A holistic approach is used to provide quality care with support and encouragement to make choices to live a life that displays recovery in his/her areas of choice. Peer Support services are available to individuals who are 18 years or older and diagnosed with a mental illness.

CSP Client Artwork
MCCC's Community Support Program is currently displaying client artwork at the Mountain Art Center in Prestonsburg, KY. Art is one of the platforms that our clients are using to speak their message, "I am in recovery. I am an individual apart from my diagnosis. I am more than my mental illness. The mental illness from which I suffer, that has made me human, also gives me insight into what it means to live and not just exist. My message to the world is that there is hope and healing. My artwork displays the example of what it means to recover and live as a normal person with a mental illness."
