assertive community treatment (ACT) is a model of mental health care that provides intensive, multidisciplinary, and individualized services to people with severe and persistent mental illnesses. ACT teams work with clients in their natural settings, such as their homes, workplaces, or community locations, and offer a range of services, such as medication management, psychotherapy, crisis intervention, social support, and vocational assistance. The goal of ACT is to help clients achieve recovery and live independently in the community.
