Assertive Community Treatment

The Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program delivers comprehensive behavioral health services to individuals who are diagnosed with severe mental illness and whose needs have not been well met by more traditional service delivery approaches in the community. The Behavioral Health and Wellness Division funds two ACT teams in Albuquerque. The agencies operating these programs are UNM Hospital and New Mexico Solutions.  Each program functions as a mobile, trans-disciplinary treatment team of mental health professionals with staff-shared caseloads that deliver the majority of its services in natural community settings.
