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 Health & Human Services Division has developed two ACT teams in Albuquerque. The contracts to operate these programs have been awarded to UNM Hospital and St. Martin’s Hospitality Center. A third ACT team will start in 2012 through a contract awarded to 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.
