Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
ACT is an evidence-based treatment that helps people with serious mental illness meet their goals of independent living and reduce their need for hospitalization. ACT is among the most well-established practices in behavioral healthcare for people with serious mental illness. ACT is designed for people with serious and persistent mental illness who have significant difficulty doing the everyday things needed to live independently in the community.
Fidelity and Evaluation
The Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health provides fidelity reviews of our practices of focus. A fidelity review is a quality-improvement tool to provide agencies an external evaluation of their practice for the purpose of service enhancement. If you are an ACT team in need of a fidelity review, please see more about our approach to fidelity reviews or contact us to arrange a review with our senior consultants.
