Assertive Community Treatment
The Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team provides mobile psychiatric treatment services to individuals suffering from severe and persistent mental illnesses and follows the nationally recognized PACT community treatment model endorsed by NAMI. The multidisciplinary team can provide many of the services traditionally found on inpatient psychiatric hospital units to individuals in their homes, apartments, or who are homeless.
Those services may include medical evaluation and medication prescribing, mental health and substance use evaluation and recovery support, vocational rehabilitation, job training and support, housing assistance and other services focusing on stabilization and independence. Individuals who choose to work with the ACT team become team “members” and together with the staff they identify their goals and dreams, form treatment plans to realize those goals and then work to become independent and successful in ways meaningful to them.
This is a one-year program and it is medicaid funded in collaboration with the UNI Crisis Line which provides support to members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The ACT Team is available to members 24 hours a day by telephone in case you need support.
