Community Psychiatric Support Program

Community based services for individuals living with severe and persistent mental illness

The Central Community Health Board (CCHB) Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment Service (CPST services or Case management) provides community based services to individuals living with severe and persistent mental illness. Case management/CPST services are provided directly by staff who are generally unlicensed but classified as Qualified Mental Health Specialists. Our services are directed toward adults 18 years and up. The purpose/intent of CPST services is to provide specific, measurable, and individualized services to each person served. CPST services should be focused on the individual’s ability to succeed in the community; to identify and access needed services; and to show improvement in school, work and family and integration and contribution with the community.

Program Philosophy

Support mental health recovery and promote illness management by teaching skills and providing information that empower individuals to reduce susceptibility to their illness, cope effectively with symptoms and develop a sense of identity that allows them to grow beyond their mental illness.  All services are person-centered and are based on the individuals’ strengths, needs, abilities and preferences.

Program Goals

  1. Support the recovery, health and well-being of the persons served
  2. Enhance quality of life of the persons served
  3. Reduce symptoms or needs
  4. Build resilience
  5. Restore and improve functioning
  6. Increase independence
  7. Support integration of the person served into the community
