Assertive Community Treatment Program
The ACT program
is designed to meet the needs of the chronically mentally ill in the
local community. The main emphasis is to provide services in the settings where
they live and work and to teach the skills essential
to a safe and successful community tenure. The program also provides
various services to at-risk consumers. As program attendees become more
stable and self-sufficient, they work together with the staff to explore less
intensive treatment options that will continue to support community tenure and
Staff and clients in the ACT program work together in identifying goals and
strategies to help the consumer. Individualized day-to-day assistance and
support in areas of living (such as housing, finance/benefits, employment and
accessing community resources) are available.
Services provided include:
Crisis Intervention, Targeted Case Management, Individual Therapy, Group
therapy, Psychiatric medical Assessment, Skills Training and Development,
Nursing Services and IPS/Job Support referrals.

admissions, frequent Emergency Room visits, high rate of contact with Law
Enforcement and a diagnosis of serious and persistent mental illness with or
without co-occurring disorder.
