The Mind-Body Collaborative is an evidenced-based Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT).
Frequently, clients and families seeking assistance are pulled out of their natural therapeutic supports, (school, work, family relationships, friendships, hobbies) to engage in treatment because most mental health care is group/milieu based.
Clients must conform to the group schedule of the PHP or IOP, or go away to another city or State to 'get better'. There are alternatives to this approach.
We believe people return to sustained health and wellness in the context of their natural therapeutic supports in their lived environments.
It is not unusual for people to be working with multiple providers who rarely, if ever, see or communicate with each other. Integrated care is a hallmark of PACT, and a core element of how our team operates.
