Children’s Therapeutic Services & Support (CTSS)

Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) are a set of mental health services developed to provide restorative rehabilitative interventions covered by Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) to children and their families. CTSS establishes policies and practices for certification and coverage of mental health services for children who require varying therapeutic and rehabilitative levels of intervention in their homes or elsewhere in the community.

Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) components may be provided only by an agency (county, tribe or non-county agency) or a school that has been certified using the provider certification process developed by DHS.
