Community Services & Support Programs

The majority of MHSA funding (80%) is mandated to be directed toward the Community Services and Supports (CSS) component. CSS provides access to mental health services and targets Seriously Emotionally Disturbed (SED) children, youth, and populations with Serious Mental Illness. SED, as defined by regulation, refers to children and youth with difficulty functioning in multiple life domains, such as school, home, and/or community. Serious Mental Illness (SMI) is a term defined by Federal regulations that generally applies to mental disorders that significantly interfere with some area of functioning.

There are currently fourteen (14) CSS programs designed to serve all age groups.
