Community Support Team
Our Community Support Team services promote independence, productivity and community integration for people with symptoms of severe mental illness. People are encouraged and supported to be active in the development of their own recovery goals. Services are flexible and are provided in homes, community settings and at the Stewart Behavioral Health Center.
