The Assertive Community Treatment KIT is part of a series of documents created for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services. Meant to address the needs of program administrators, practitioners, and staff in the mental health field, this evidence-based practices KIT includes seven publications, as well as a DVD, CD-ROM, PowerPoint presentation, program brochure, training materials, and handbooks.
Following the organization, style, and format that we set in the Assertive Community Treatment KIT, along with Westat, we have created several other KITS for SAMHSA. For example, Supported Employment is a well-defined approach to helping people with mental illnesses find and keep competitive employment within their communities. Supported Employment programs are staffed by employment specialists who have frequent meetings with treatment providers to integrate supported employment with mental health services.
