ACT is a self-contained program that provides treatment, rehabilitation and support services to consumers who have a history of multiple hospitalization treatments. ACT services include supported housing and co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorder services.

ACT uses an integrated approach merging clinical and rehabilitation staff (e.g., psychiatric, substance use, skills development) in one mobile service delivery team. The team maintains a small consumer-to-staff caseload ratio of ten-to-one, and provides mobile services 80 percent of the time.

Who is Eligible?

Adults with a primary diagnosis of schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder or bipolar disorder who have experienced a minimum of:

  • Two psychiatric-related hospitalizations in the past 180 days,
  • Four psychiatric-related hospitalizations in the past two years, or
  • One psychiatric related hospitalization of greater than 30 days duration within the past two years.
