About Mental Illness
A mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning.
What is Recovery?
Recovery from serious mental illness is not only possible, but for many people living with mental illness today, probable. The notion of recovery involves a variety of perspectives.
The Community Support Program (CSP) is a coalition of individuals who receive mental health services, their family members, mental health providers and interested community members along with the Bucks County Department of Mental Health/Developmental Programs and other County Behavioral Health Partners in an equal partnership to promote recovery and excellence in the delivery of community based mental health services.
At monthly meetings individuals come together to exchange information /formulate ideas about how all parts of the local community can coordinate assets to offer the most needed services and supports to people who experience mental health challenges and to identify opportunities where people in recovery can contribute in building a better community.
There are three meetings in Bucks County based in the three different geographic regions: Lower, Central and Upper Bucks.
CSP meetings occur monthly with each committee developing its own subcommittees based on topics which are of interest to the individuals attending that particular meeting. Subcommittees, sometimes also called “workgroups” are the place where issues of greatest interest and concern are addressed in more detail.
