The Turning Point Yolo Assertive Community Treatment (Yolo ACT) team works with clients to reduce psychiatric hospitalizations, incarcerations and homelessness and to improve quality of life and satisfaction by providing opportunities to engage in meaningful activities. By offering a chance to take classes, volunteer or train for employment or return to work, Yolo ACT ensures clients have better prospects for recovery on the path to mental health.

Turning Point Yolo Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is MHSA-funded and offers 50 individuals with psychiatric disabilities a full service partnership program that addresses mental health, housing and community reintegration. The ACT model is an evidence-based practice that consistently achieves positive outcomes for individuals with psychiatric disabilities. Clients are assigned a point person in order to receive more individualized attention, but they have access to any team member. Access to a psychiatrist, nursing services and housing and employment services are available. This flexible, client-driven comprehensive treatment has been shown to reduce risk and improve mental health outcomes.

Turning Point Yolo Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT), also known as “Laura’s Law,” provides court-ordered voluntary mental health services to adults diagnosed with a severe mental illness and a history of psychiatric hospitalization and/or incarceration due to psychiatric symptoms. Individuals served are unlikely to survive safely in the community. Most individuals referred through AOT engage in treatment, thereby avoiding the need for a court order.
