Staff of the assertive community treatment program go out for an excursion

Staff of the assertive community treatment program go out for an excursion in Borjomi, outside of Tbilisi, Georgia. Assertive community treatment gives flexible treatment and support to people with mental illness in every aspect of their lives, whether it be medication, therapy, social support, employment or housing. In Georgia, many people with mental disabilities continue to be placed in long-stay institutional settings, excluded from society and without access to education, employment, and health care, but with assertive community treatment they live at home.
This is @amivitale on assignment for @opensocietyfoundations sharing work this week on the de-institutionalization of care for people with developmental disabilities.
