Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)


Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team is a multi-disciplinary team that provides intensive case management focusing on support, rehabilitation and treatment to individuals with severe and persistent mental health issues. The program helps consumers achieve their goals, improve their health and quality of life, and live as independently as possible.


Team members’ specialties include psychiatry, registered nursing, social work, occupational therapy, addictions, therapeutic recreation and peer support.


Referral Process – An ACT Referral Form for Waterloo Region needs to be completed. The form is available on this website by clicking here. The form is also available from the Grand River Hospital Crisis Clinic, Grand River Hospital Mental Health & Addictions Specialized Mental Health Program, COTT (Community Outreach Treatment Team), Canadian Mental Health Association – Grand River Branch, Waterloo Wellington Community Care Access Centre, family physicians, and psychiatrists.


New referral applications are reviewed by a Community Intake Group. Each referral is assessed to determine if ACT is the appropriate level of support required.
