Breaking down barriers

Salt Lake County implemented the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program to help people for whom traditional methods were ineffective.

Brandy was homeless, battling addiction and has paranoid schizophrenia. Her multidisciplinary ACT team took a whole-person approach to help her with everything from housing and employment, to physical and mental health, including integrated treatment and counseling. 

Optum partners with county and government entities and providers, in this case Volunteers of America, to help Medicaid members struggling with behavioral health and substance abuse issues. Watch Brandy’s story to see how this partnership builds resilience and hope.
