Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)

Assertive Community Treatment is an evidenced-based practice that offers treatment, rehabilitation, and support services, using a person-centered, recovery-based approach, to individuals that have been diagnosed with a severe and persistent mental illness. Assertive Community Treatment services - assertive outreach, mental health treatment, health, vocational, integrated dual disorder treatment, family education, wellness skills, community linkages, and peer support - are provided to individuals by a mobile, multi-disciplinary team in community settings. The goal of Assertive Community Treatment services is to assist individuals to achieve their personally meaningful goals and life roles.
