The ACT CoE team assists ACT providers with the implementation, coaching, mentoring, training, fidelity monitoring, technical assistance, and analysis of standards/guidelines to support administrative code, data analysis, and outcomes.
It utilizes a team-based approach to provide a range of intensive community-based services to people who experience Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI) and often have co-occurring substance abuse disorders.
