Southeast Regional CSP Committee

History and Structure

Since 1984, the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health has utilized CSP Principles and the state CSP Advisory Committee (now called the OMHSAS Mental Health Planning Council) to guide development of services.  Today, a network of local and regional CSP committees provide a place for consumers, family members and providers to work together to advise OMHSAS regarding the promotion of a recovery oriented system of care for individuals in recovery from behavioral health challenges in Pennsylvania.


Through the Community Support Program, small seed grants awarded to agencies, counties and advocacy groups have generated innovative trainings, anti-stigma campaigns, celebrations of recovery and the production of a wide variety of literature.  Individuals in recovery have been empowered by CSP and have risen to leadership roles.  The system of care continues to be impacted by CSP to ever improve in its ability to promote recovery, not just stabilization, and more and more individuals are experiencing recovery from mental illness.  Their voices are being heard.


Southeast Regional CSP consists of a main meeting and subcommittees. Subcommittees meet one hour before the main meeting and include Advocacy, Outreach, Social, Speaker Presentation, Scholarship, Seed Grant and Retreat Planning. Additional subcommittees and workgroups form as needed. Subcommittees report their progress during the main meeting. Meetings are held on a monthly basis and everyone is welcome to attend.
