ACT is a way of delivering a full range of services to people who have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness.
Elements of ACT:

Services Provided Where They are Needed: Consumers receive ACT services in their homes, where they work, and in other settings in the community where problems occur or where support is needed.
Personalized Care: ACT teams work with relatively small numbers of people, those in greatest need of intensive services to live independently in the community.

Comprehensive Care: ACT teams provide an array of services to help meet consumer needs, including case management, nursing, representative payor services, vocational, medication management, alcohol and drug services and skill building.
