Outcomes - 6x4 - Text

Assertive Community Treatment is one of the most effective evidence based practices in mental health treatment.  Over 30 years of research has demonstrated that high fidelity ACT programs reduce psychiatric hospitalization and utilization of acute care; increase housing stability; and improve quality of lives.

All ACT programs in Oregon will begin submitting their ACT program outcomes to a new web based portal beginning quarter 1 2018.  For more information, please contact Alyssa Kerlinger:
