ABOUT OUR ADULT SERVICES DIVISION

For adults with serious mental illness, recovery and success in life depends on good mental and physical health, as well as having satisfying relationships, safe housing, purpose in life, a sense of belonging, and hope for the future. We help people define their personal goals for recovery and manage their symptoms so they can achieve those goals. With our integrated health services, care and support, they discover strengths they didnt know they had and are able to build futures filled with hope, meaning, and wellness.

Our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program focuses on providing intense, frequent, face-to-face services to members with persistent and severe mental illness and/or substance use disorders. Its primary goal is recovery through community treatment and habilitation. Most services are provided in the community, when and where members need them. ACT services reduce crises and helps members learn skills that are needed to integrate into the community and live independently without supports. This evidence-based practice helps improve outcomes for people who are most at-risk of homelessness, psychiatric hospitalization, and institutional recidivism.
