FSP Full Service Partnership Information
What is an FSP?
An FSP is a Full Service Partnership is a category of allowable costs within the Community Services and Support component of the Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plan. The California Code of Regulations, Title 9, Section 3200.130 defines an FSP as “the collaborative relationship between the County and the client, and when appropriate the client’s family, through which the County plans for and provides the full spectrum of community services so that the client can achieve the identified goals.”
Adult Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs are
designed for adults ages 26-59 who have been diagnosed with a severe mental illness and would benefit from an intensive service program. The foundation of Full Service Partnerships is doing “whatever it takes” to help individuals on their path to recovery and wellness. Full Service Partnerships embrace client driven services and supports with each client choosing services based on individual needs. Unique to FSP programs are a low staff to client ratio, a 24/7 crisis availability and a team approach that is a partnership between mental health staff and consumers.
Adult FSP programs assist with housing, employment and education in addition to providing mental health services and integrated treatment for individuals who have a co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorder. Services can be provided to individuals in their homes, the community and other locations. Peer and caregiver support groups are available. Embedded in Full Service Partnerships is a commitment to deliver services in ways that are culturally and linguistically competent and appropriate. Adult Full Service Partnership programs will provide services to 2,611 individuals.

Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs that are based on the assertive community treatment (ACT) and wraparound services models. These services use a team approach to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and support for “whatever it takes” to move toward recovery and resilience for individuals with serious mental illness.
Do all FSPs have to receive all services?
The regulations provide that the full service partnership agreement “may include the Full Spectrum of Community Services necessary to attain the goals identified in the Individual Services and Supports Plan”. (9 CCR § 3620, subd. (a))
The Full Spectrum of Community Services may consist of a variety of services and supports. However all of the services listed in Title 9, CCR section 3620, subdivision (a) are not required to be provided to every individual. Rather, the determination of which services to be provided to an individual is made on the basis of the ISSP, which is created by the individual and his/her case manager or personal services coordinator. (9 CCR § 3620, subds. (a), (h)(1).)
The regulations permit the County to use CSS funds under the FSP service category to “pay for the services when it is cost effective and consistent with the ISSP.” (9 CCR § 3620, subd. (b).)
