(This amendment provides $2.0 million from the general fund each year to fund two additional Programs for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT). These programs focus on individuals with serious mental illness at-risk of being frequent utilizers of hospitals, homeless shelters and jails. PACT teams are self-contained interdisciplinary teams of clinical staff that provide intensive treatment in the community to promote stability for individuals that typically do not access the mental health system.)
