Program of Assertive Community Treatment

Warren Yazoo Behavioral Health PACT Teams serve individuals with severe and persistent mental illness as listed in the most current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association that seriously impair their functioning in community living. Priority is given to people with schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders (e.g., schizoaffective disorder), and bipolar disorder because these illnesses more often cause long-term psychiatric disability. Individuals with other psychiatric illnesses are eligible dependent on the level of the long-term disability.


By design, the PACT Team program and services are person-centered. The PACT team provides most (an average of 75%) of its services to individuals in their homes and other familiar community settings on a 24/7 basis. Education and support services are also available to families of individuals being served. Consumers and family members, as appropriate, will participate in the PACT Treatment Planning process. In addition, consumers and family members will participate on the PACT Stakeholder Advisory Group to help make up at least 51% of the group’s membership, along with other key community stakeholders.
