This organization works with people severely affected by mental illness, and makes a difference in lives, families and communities.

But the organization is too busy doing the important work to tell their story, and secure funding for growth.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1479404372034{padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_inner][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”2″ animation_delay=”0″ animation_iteration_count=”1″ css=”.vc_custom_1479404466302{margin-top: -20px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”772″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text el_class=”logo” css=”.vc_custom_1480113512869{margin-top: -30px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”]

[/vc_column_text][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]The Ontario Act Association is an organization of 79 healthcare teams of mental health clinicians: psychiatrist, nurses, social workers and others. Across Ontario, ACT teams work with patients severely affected by schizophrenia or bipolar type 1, offering intense medical attention and treatment. On average, this good medicine reduces their clients’ annual number of hospital days from 70 down to 27.[/vc_column_text][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”1″ animation_delay=”1″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Defaults-folder-open” icon_size=”50″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#dd3333″ icon_animation=”bounceIn” counter_title=”resource guidelines & documents, totaling 84 pages” counter_value=”14″ speed=”6″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” desc_font_color=”#dd3333″][/ult_animation_block][vc_column_text]There’s an enormous need for more ACT teams across Ontario. The website makes the case for funding additional ACT teams with a  strong narrative, and unimpeachable stats that point to huge healthcare savings. The site connects team members with a forum, where best practices can be shared, and consensus developed. And with its CMS, the OAA can make changes easily.

With plain language and storytelling techniques, the ACT story reaches out to policy makers and politicians. They need to loosen the purse strings to save us all money.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”2″ animation_delay=”0″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Defaults-user-md” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#ed1c24″ counter_value=”79″ counter_suffix=” ACT Teams” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#ed1c24″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#ed1c24″ suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:15px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”3″ animation_delay=”1″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Defaults-medkit” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#02a8d2″ counter_value=”6000″ counter_suffix=” clients served” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#02a8d2″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#02a8d2″ suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:15px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”2″ animation_delay=”0″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Defaults-hospital-o” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#f89742″ counter_value=”176000″ counter_suffix=” fewer hospital days in one year” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#ed1c24″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#f89742″ suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:15px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”3″ animation_delay=”1″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Defaults-dollar usd” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#5bb75b” counter_value=”105000000″ counter_suffix=” savings in one year” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#02a8d2″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#5bb75b” suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:15px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_btn title=”Visit the Ontario ACT Association” style=”custom” custom_background=”#00ccff” custom_text=”#ffffff” shape=”square” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-heartbeat” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fontarioactassociation.com||target:%20_blank|” add_icon=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
