Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Program
This evidence-based model provides comprehensive, individualized 24/7 assistance to people with severe and persistent mental illness.
Individuals are usually identified at psychiatric hospitals and/or jails by the nature and severity of their illnesses and challenges with standard outpatient services, and are directed to ACT teams via referral through King County.
Involvement with ACT is voluntary. Though many individuals with severe and persistent mental illness could benefit from ACT services, ACT is intended to help those who are most disabled by their mental illness or co-occurring disorders and have been hospitalized or incarcerated many times or for long periods of time.
