Baltimore Region Community ProgramsTitle: University of Maryland Division of Community Psychiatry: Adult Community Support and Entitlement Services Program (ACSES)
Description: ACSES consists of the Community Support Program and the SSI Outreach Project.
Community Support Program (CSP) The CSP is a targeted intensive case management program that is designed to meet the needs of adults with serious and persistent mental illness who require extensive community support that is not available in traditional mental health services. Staff members work closely with clinical teams to assist individuals with taking medication and keeping treatment appointments. They also help obtain a variety of other services, such as housing, medical care, social services, vocational services, rehabilitation services and public benefits.
SSI Outreach Project
The SSI project is an outreach program funded on a HUD grant through Baltimore Mental Health Systems, Inc. The program serves adults in Baltimore City who have serious and persistent mental illness. Clinical staff of the project are able to make presumptive determinations of disability and, therefore obtain income for individuals much more quickly than usual. This is the only project in the country authorized by the SSA to make such determinations for adults with psychiatric disabilities.
