Adult Mental Health – Outpatient Services

ACT is a mental health program that focuses on individual clients and their recovery by facilitating community living and psychosocial rehabilitation for persons with serious and persistent mental illness, and who have very significant functional impairments. ACT services are delivered by a group of mental health staff from a variety of disciplines, who work as a team and provide the majority of treatment services.

There are several mobile ACT teams in Victoria (Downtown ACT Team, Pandora ACT Team, Victoria Integrated Community Outreach Team, Seven Oaks ACT Team, and STEP Team).

Referrals are done internally through the Pathways system, or directly from the community. A physician can call the information line to see if their patient may fit the program and request a referral form, or, refer their patient to MHSU intake.
