Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) teams
Assertive Community Treatment is a client-centered, recovery-oriented mental health service delivered by multidisciplinary treatment teams, designed to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and support to persons with serious and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia.
ACT Team programs are for people who have not benefitted from traditional outpatient programs. Because one of the main goals is to help keep people living in their homes in the community (rather than in hospital), ACT programs are usually reserved for people who have had excessive, prolonged stays in hospitals.
