"Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)"

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is an inclusive array of community-based rehabilitative mental health services provided to individuals with serious mental illness who require intensive support to avoid hospitalization.

In ACT, a dedicated and multi-disciplinary team assumes ultimate accountability for a defined caseload of individuals with serious and persistent mental illness. This team becomes the single point of responsibility, providing targeted services directly and sharing responsibility for all individuals served. With a small staff-to-consumer ratio, ACT ensures personalized and comprehensive treatment and support that is individualized to each person's unique needs.
