Program for Assertive Community Treatment
The PACT model is effective for individuals eighteen years and older who have serious mental health conditions with symptoms that produce distress and disruptions in daily functioning (e.g. employment, self-care, and social and interpersonal relationships). PACT participants often are persons with diagnoses of schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders, major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder. PACT participants are also frequently persons who have not been helped by traditional outpatient mental health models, have had bad experiences in the traditional system or are reluctant to use mental health services for other reasons.
Referrals for PACT services are made through the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health or the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership.
