Assertive Community Treatment

Our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program is an evidence-based approach to working with adults living with serious mental illnesses. The ACT advantage is that interdisciplinary mental health clinicians are organized as an accountable mental health team, which functions in a coordinated manner to provide treatment, rehabilitation, and support services. The goal is to help adults with serious mental illnesses live successfully in the community.

ACT is sometimes referred to as a “hospital without walls” because our work is community-based, and we can make adjustments quickly to help clients stay out of the hospital and in the community. This program is primarily funded by Iowa Medicaid but some supplemental funding is provided by Southwest Iowa Region.

Eligibility: The program is designed for adult residents of Cass, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Monona, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie and Shelby County,  Iowa, living with serious mental illness that impairs social functioning and produces continuous high-service needs. Individuals who have been ordered by local and/or state courts to receive extended outpatient treatment and other services may also be eligible for ACT services.
