Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT)

The Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACTT) provides services for adults who have mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder and schizoaffective disorder. The program is designed for those individuals who require intensive follow-up services provided in their own community. 

ACTT is a long-term program that assists clients in accomplishing a wide range of treatment, support, and rehabilitation goals. Our team offers psychiatric, nursing, social work, occupational therapy, addiction, peer support and mental health worker expertise. The team has the potential to provide a 1:8 staff to client ratio. 

The ACTT model stresses the importance of using psychosocial and medical approaches. Typical clients require frequent contacts and often need assistance with activities of daily living, social relationships, employment, housing, medical, financial, legal or addiction issues. ACTT also has the ability to assess, prescribe, dispense, administer, monitor and evaluate medications. 

North York General Hospital’s ACCT is a founding partner of ACCESS 1, the North York and Scarborough Individual Support Service Access Network.
