What is Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)?

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) refers to the provision of multiple community-based mental health services delivered by a single team of caregivers to promote a coordinated approach to improving mental health and decreasing hospitalization and incarceration. Traditionally available to single adults over the age of 18, Youth ACT is focusing on young people ages 16-20 as well as their families.

Who we serve

We serve youth ages 16-20 residing in the Twin Cities metro who are struggling with functioning at home, in school or in the community due to a diagnosed (or diagnosable) serious mental health disorder. Provision of these services includes working with the family of the youth being served.
