ACT Assertive Community Treatment

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a community-based and mobile team intervention designed for people with behavioral health challenges and at risk for hospitalization, involvement with the justice system and homelessness. ACT in New York uses the transitional care framework to structure the work of the team:

 

  1. Engaging & envisioning life goals;

  2. Engaging in wellness self-management; and

  3. Integrating with the community

 

Needs change as people move through life and as such, a treatment approach that has flexibility and adaptability to the individual need at a given time is necessary. Rehabilitation services, core evidence-based practices and tools are used by the ACT Team to facilitate and support growth towards community integration.
