TURNING POINT YOLO’S ASSERTIVE COMMUNITY TREATMENT (ACT) 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, the team ensures clients have better prospects for recovery on the path to mental health. The ACT model is an evidence-based practice that consistently shows positive outcomes for individuals with psychiatric disabilities.
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.
