Many individuals living with serious mental illness have frequent interaction with mental health providers and the healthcare system. With the stay-at-home orders and the requirement of social distancing that come with the COVID-19 pandemic, adaptation of usual treatment practices is needed to maintain engagement and continuity of care. This free townhall presentation brings together a panel of experts in SMI to highlight and answer questions about arising best practices being implemented by Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) teams, and supporting those in supportive housing or group homes.
