Established in 1990 within the United States, IEN was formed by grassroots Indigenous peoples and individuals to address environmental and economic justice issues (EJ). IEN’s activities include building the capacity of Indigenous communities and tribal governments to develop mechanisms to protect our sacred sites, land, water, air, natural resources, health of both our people and all living things, and to build economically sustainable communities. IEN accomplishes this by maintaining an informational clearinghouse, organizing campaigns, direct actions and public awareness, building the capacity of community and tribes to address EJ issues, development of initiatives to impact policy, and building alliances among Indigenous communities, tribes, inter-tribal and Indigenous organizations, people-of-color/ethnic organizations, faith-based and women groups, youth, labor, environmental organizations and others. IEN convenes local, regional and national meetings on environmental and economic justice issues, and provides support, resources and referral to Indigenous communities and youth throughout primarily North America – and in recent years – globally.

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is an evidence based model for providing comprehensive community-based treatment to person with severe and persistent mental illness.  The Headwaters ACT Team is a multidisciplinary group organized as mobile mental health service providers.

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:

-With ACT, consumers are hospitalized less often and have more stable housing

-Team members are involved and familiar with all consumers

-The team works one on one with individual clients and families

-Cultural respect and guidance is offered by a Cultural Coordinator

With ACT, consumers get help taking care of their basic needs – taking medications, cooking and many other individual needs.  The ACT team helps consumers find housing, apply for food stamps, go back to school, or get a job.

How does ACT work?

A Team Approach:  An Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), RN, licensed mental health professionals, mental health practitioners, an employment specialist, a peer support specialist, a cultural coordinator, and a substance abuse specialist join together on ACT teams to give consumers ongoing, individualized care.

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.

Time-Unlimited Support:  ACT teams give consumers services and support they need for as long as they need them.

Continuous Care:  ACT team members work regularly with frequency of services that can range from several contacts a day to once a week or less depending on the need of the client.

Flexible Care:  ACT teams fit their schedules around the needs of the consumers.

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.
