Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT)
The Monarch Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT) provides a comprehensive, personalized treatment program for people who have been diagnosed with a severe and persistent mental illness. ACTT staff work with people in their home, at school, or at work, and are available 24/7 with rapid response to calls. ACTT employs an integrated team approach to help individuals with everyday basics such as getting moving in the morning, taking medications, and making it through the day. Team members closely monitor progress to ensure that medication is working and being administered correctly. They also help people find proper housing, sort out expenses, and build skills for the home, community and workplace. The team includes a psychiatrist, nurses, vocational specialists, therapists, and other mental health professionals as well as peer support staff. The main goal of this intensive service is to help people remain out of the hospital and living in the community.
