In this article, Gary defines Assertive community treatment, ACT, as one of the approaches that can be used to deal with mental illnesses. Schizophrenia is one of the serious mental illnesses. Gary argues that AGT is the best way to organize services and provide essential support for mentally ill individuals. He advocates for community integration together with the clients having conditions such as schizophrenia. ACT is seen by the author as a holistic approach as it will result in provision of medicine, finances, housing, and any other need.
