Brightside's Community Support Program (CSP) servicea are short-term transitional services with the goal of assisting children,
adolescents, and their families with outreach and wraparound services needed to
live successfully in the community. CSP services may include advocacy, coordination
of treatment, outreach, assistance with basic needs, skill building, and facilitating
linkages with community and natural support systems.
CSP is frequently a step-down service from FST if the goals from FST have not been fully completed. CSP can accept referrals directly from the parents or other community providers and are appropriate if the child is not in a state of mental health crisis, and the primary goal is case management of community services/programs. Bilingual, Spanish speaking staff are available. CSP services are funded by MassHealth.
