PACT: Program of Assertive Community Treatment

The Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT), is an outpatient, clinical research unit of the Mendota Mental Health Institute. PACT, also known in the mental health literature as the "Training in Community Living Program" first began as a demonstration project to both implement initial research findings of Mendota researchers in the late 1960's and early 1970's (early work), and to further investigate new approaches to providing integrated, long-term treatment to persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses.
