Assertive Community Treatment, or ACT, offers a highly coordinated
approach aimed at meeting the needs of adults with severe and persistent
mental illness who may benefit from more intensive, community based,
interdisciplinary services. It combines a full range of treatment,
rehabilitation, and support services to help persons with mental illness
stay out of the hospital and succeed in the community. The ACT Team
is one of the many programs offered at Community Alliance and details
are available at: http://www.community-alliance.org/userfiles/File/act.pdf
Reminder: When inclement weather forces local public schools to close in the city or town that a NAMI meeting is held, NAMI Omaha meetings will also be cancelled.
