The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is accepting applications through May 29 for grants to establish, expand and maintain Assertive Community Treatment programs to reduce hospitalization rates and death for people with serious mental illness. The programs provide around-the-clock support teams that can respond to a home or other setting to avoid crises caused by serious mental illness symptoms. Eligible applicants for the $23.7 million in grants include health care facilities and mental health systems. SAMHSA expects to award up to seven grants of up to $678,000 per year for up to five years.
