Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
ACT is an evidence-based model for individuals with serious mental illness who need extensive support to live independently in the community. Services are provided by an interdisciplinary team that includes a psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, RN, master’s-prepared clinicians, advocates, and a peer support specialist. Individuals served on ACT receive all their behavioral health services from the ACT team. This allows services to be highly coordinated. Individuals served by ACT generally have multiple visits from the ACT team weekly, and these visits are tailored to the unique needs of the person served. Support from the ACT team is available 24/7 on call for mental health crisis and emergent needs.
