ACT and COVID-19: Meet Up for ACT Mental Health Authorities, Funders, Trainers, and Fidelity Reviewers
April 21, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a multidisciplinary, team-based model that provides intensive community-based and outreach-oriented services to people who experience the most severe and persistent mental illness. The vast majority also have a co-occurring substance use disorder and many experience comorbid medical illnesses as well as homelessness. This is a vulnerable population and their providers – ACT teams – are at elevated risk themselves during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are hosting a meet-up for non-provider ACT stakeholders who assume a role of overseeing ACT, funding ACT, providing ACT training and technical supports, and/or conducting ACT fidelity reviews. The intent is to create a unique space to share challenges and solutions related ACT operations and services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
