CSP/AILS/DVP

Community Support Program (CSP)

Our Community Support Program (CSP) assists Sherburne and Wright county residents experiencing serious mental illness in achieving and maintaining a dignified and meaningful quality of life. Offered in Buffalo and Elk River, we provide opportunities for program participants to increase socialization, live independently and enjoy a health lifestyle. A University of Minnesota study, led by David R. Jacobs, PHD, discovered that young adults who exercise and socialize regularly reported better mental health that peers who don’t. Some of the events that CSP offers include but are not limited to:

~Peer support group

~Games

~Movies

~Dining out

~Art

~Fishing

Assistance in Independent Living Skills (AILS)

CSP in Wright County also offers Assistance in Independent Living Skills (AILS) for clients with serious and persistent mental illness who already receive services from Wright County Mental Health Case Management and/or CMMHC. Based in the home or community, AILS is a service that offers support, assistance and instruction to help our clients build and maintain daily living skills which are negatively impacted by mental health symptoms. No insurance is necessary for this service
