The 2nd ACT Program serves people on parole to the Colorado Department of Corrections, who live in Boulder or Broomfield Counties, and who have a serious mental illness. The team is multi-disciplinary, including that the assigned parole officer is part of the team. The services are based on the Assertive Community Treatment model, and include treatment for substance abuse disorders.
The main goals of the program are to improve parolees’ transition to the community and to reduce returns to prison. People, who have serious mental illness and criminal justice involvement, often fail in their attempts to re-integrate into the community. This program, located in Longmont, can also link clients to the other services provided by Mental Health Partners. Some of these are: Clubhouse, drop-in, residential, and patient assistance for medication, and peer support. Clients can transition to less-intensive programs as they become integrated into the community, and successfully complete their parole. Other goals are to improve employment or benefit acquisition, prevent hospitalization, and improve participants’ success in the community.
2nd ACT is located at the Longmont branch of Mental Health Partners, at 529 Coffman, on the third floor.
