Conference (in person) Vancouver, August 14-16, 2023

ACTT & FACTT staff, clients/service users, families, community partners, students and researchers are invited!

In facing the many challenges to the practice of Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), this conference, with keynote lectures from several Canadian and International speakers, will explore evidence-based interventions to support individuals living with severe mental health and substance use challenges, including those who have frequent interactions with the justice system. We will evaluate how the traditional ACT model has evolved and adapted to meet community needs by diversifying the implementation of ACT and Flexible ACT teams.
