We are offering a graduate-level INTERNSHIP/PRACTICUM in Assertive Community Treatment Services (ACT).

The ACT team services include case management, housing, therapy, transportation, psychiatry, pharmacology, group sessions, and crisis assistance. Our Adult ACT team has a subspecialty in serving the homeless population. Individuals also have a primary diagnosis of schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, major depressive disorder with psychotic features, other psychotic disorders, or bipolar disorder.
