Equilibrium and Youth ACT Services

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a comprehensive, community-based, team approach to serving individuals who have diagnosed (or diagnosable) mental illnesses, often accompanied by a co-occurring substance use disorder or other medical conditions, and a variety of social health complexities.  ACT services benefit individuals who experience difficulty meeting and/or sustaining every day needs and/or in interpersonal functioning, education or employment.  Individuals served often have histories of hospitalization or residential treatment for psychiatric care. Services can be accessed 24/7.

EQ is designed to promote optimal health and success in education, employment and community living.
