Dane County CCS

DCDHS_Logo_2021.pngWe partner with Dane County Comprehensive Community Services to provide psychosocial, occupational, and service facilitation services to CCS clients.


Psychosocial Services

Psychosocial Services include different types of psychotherapy, and social and vocational training; and aim to provide support, education and guidance to people with a mental health diagnosis. These services can also be useful for allies, family, and community members who support, love, or engage with individuals with mental health diagnoses. Our psychosocial services include: Psychotherapy, Family Therapy, Psychoeducation, Diagnostics, Parent Coaching, Groups, and Individual Skill Development. Psychosocial treatments are an effective way to improve the quality of life for individuals with mental illness and the individuals that walk alongside them.

At Common Threads we have found that autistics who also have a co-occuring mental health diagnosis can also benefit from psychosocial services. These services are most impactful when an autistic's neurology is understood and factored into the treatment provided. Our team works closely with their autistic clients to best understand how their ASD presents and how their neurology is best supported in order to provide effective treatment for the mental health challenges separate from Autism for which these clients are engaging in treatment.


Service Facilitation

Common Threads is a proud partner/contracted provider with the Dane County Comprehensive Community Services Program (CCS) as a Service Facilitator site. Our service facilitators work to support individuals enrolled in the Dane County CCS program by ensuring the clients receive appropriate assessment services, service planning, service delivery, and supportive activities in an appropriate and timely manner. The service facilitators work with their clients to develop a service/recovery plan that is in alignment with their client's goals and needs. In doing so, they help their clients build a recovery team - a group of individuals who are identified by the client to help them work towards their goals by engaging in psychosocial services. Our Service Facilitators maintain every effort to allow the clients their own voice in regards to how they want their treatment to unfold, no matter what age or challenge.
