Our Kern ACTion program serves individuals with serious and persistent mental illness with severe functional impairments, who have avoided or not responded well to traditional outpatient mental health care and psychiatric rehabilitation services. Many of these individuals will have co-existing problems such as substance use disorders, homelessness or involvement in the criminal justice system. All clients of ACTion are eligible to receive medication management and monitoring, therapy, drug and alcohol counseling, case management, vocational rehabilitation, peer counseling and support, and housing services.
