Service Definitions

Mental Health Services are defined as services that are available through Consolidated Waiver, Person/Family Directed Support (P/FDS) Waiver, administrative funding, and base/waiver ineligible funding. These services are available to people with mental retardation aged three and older. These services are however, not available to people while they are living or staying in public or private Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF/MR), nursing homes, residential treatment facilities, correctional facilities, drug and alcohol facilities, or hospitals. The need for services must be established through assessment processes and needed services and supports must be documented in Individual support Plans (ISP's). If you have any questions, you can contact the Support Coordinator unit at your local BSU.
