ASSERTIVE COMMUNITY TREATMENT

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Stepping Stones of Rockford, Inc., 706 North Main Street, Rockford IL at 6:30pm

Speaker: John Fallon, NAMI Lake County

When a person with a severe mental illness does not respond to traditional outpatient therapy, assertive community treatment (ACT) may be the best option. ACT takes therapy take a step farther than integrated treatment by helping a person outside the hospital or rehabilitation center.

The goal for ACT is to eliminate or reduce the symptoms of severe mental  illness and to enhance the individual’s quality of life. In effect, by teaching coping and life skills while working in tandem with the mental illness, ACT, when effectively executed, can reduce hospital stays and jail time for individuals as well. Studies have shown that there have been significant drops in the length of hospital stays and jail time for those states that have implemented ACT programs.
