Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)

Overview

Our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team provides treatment and care management services for adults, aged 18 and older, who have found traditional clinic-based outpatient services insufficient for their level of needs. Our multidisciplinary team provides a blend of approaches that enable individuals to receive enhanced, intensive services while continuing to live in their communities.  

ACT Services

Our team aims to address a variety of needs crucial to an individual’s well-being, such as: 

  • Substance Use Treatment and Support
  • Employment Assistance
  • Wellness Promotion 
  • Family Support Services
  • Psychiatric and Nursing Care

Our Team

Our ACT program offers a team approach, which means that you will come to know a group of specialists who will work closely together and can visit you at your home and in the community. Our team includes a psychiatrist, nurses, social workers, licensed mental health counselors, a vocational specialist, a substance use disorder specialist, and a peer specialist. With your permission, we will work collaboratively with other service providers and your family members. 

Referrals

ACT may be a good fit if you are aged 18 and older and a resident of Westchester County. Referrals to the ACT program are initiated by submitting a Single Point of Access application (SPOA) to the SPOA Coordinator of the Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health, Desh Edwards at 914-995-6753 or dle1@westchestercountyny.gov.

Once eligibility has been confirmed and approved by DCMH, a Program Director from Greater Mental Health will contact you to discuss your respite care needs and coordinate accommodations.
