Albany County Assertive Community Treatment Program (ACT)

The Assertive Community Treatment program (ACT), implemented by the Albany County Department of Mental Health, is the first such program in the state to be licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health.

The ACT Program has been developed to serve high need, high priority individuals of Albany County with a unique and comprehensive approach to treatment. A mobile team delivers flexible treatment, rehabilitation, case management and support services to individuals with severe mental illness who may have co-occurring disorders and whose needs have not been well met by more traditional service delivery approaches.

The ACT team, which consists of a coordinator, psychiatrist, registered nurses, social workers, credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselors, and a program assistant, uses peer support services and local vocational rehabilitation programs as part of its service delivery. The program offers 24 -hour crisis support.
