Our Community Support Program (CSP) offers peer support, assistance in Independent Living Skills (AILS), and social recreation groups. These programs help those experiencing serious mental illness achieve and maintain a dignified and meaningful quality of life. Activities encourage and provide opportunities for socialization, recreation, and independent living.

Assistance in Independent Living Skills (AILS)
Clients with serious and persistent mental illness accessing services from Wright County Mental Health Case Management receive assistance with independent living skills. Based either at an individual’s home or in the community, AILS offers support and instruction for clients to build and maintain daily living skills, which are often negatively impacted by mental health symptoms. No insurance is necessary, but participation requires a Wright County Human Services referral.
Certified Peer Specialists are individuals who have lived experience of mental illness and are trained to offer support and hope to individuals with mental illness by sharing their stories and helping others to discover their strengths. Peer support offers services in the home or in the community and peers work side by side with clients to promote recovery, self-advocacy, self-sufficiency, and development of natural supports; support maintenance of skills learned from other services; and provide individualized support to individuals and promote recovery. No insurance is necessary for this service. Referrals must come from Wright County Human Services.
