GOBHI ACT Referral
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT):
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a specialized model of treatment and service delivery designed to provide comprehensive community-based mental health services to persons with serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI) who are at least 18 years of age, have severe functional impairments, and who have not responded to traditional psychiatric outpatient treatment or less intensive non-standard levels of outpatient mental health treatment.
Services are available to individuals with SPMI who have had a history of multiple psychiatric hospitalizations and/or crisis interventions. ACT services are provided over an extended period of time and include clinical, rehabilitation, recovery, supportive and case management services provided directly by a multidisciplinary team in the individual’s natural environment. ACT serves as the primary provider of services and is in some cases available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Learn more about the ACT Admission criteria.
