The Fairbanks Housing & Homeless Coalition (FHHC) will be hosting the Fairbanks Symposium on Homelessness II on February 27, 2019 from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. at the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel & Conference Center (813 Noble St, Fairbanks, AK 99701-4977). This symposium will explore the possibilities of developing a local Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team and/or a local Intensive Case Management (ICM) team. ACT and ICM are the leading behavioral health service delivery models for people experiencing homelessness. Currently the only ACT and ICM teams in Alaska are in Anchorage. This symposium will work to develop these needed services in Fairbanks.

Where: Westmark Fairbanks Hotel & Conference Center (813 Noble St, Fairbanks, AK 99701-4977)

Topics:

Assertive Community Treatment: a client-centered, recovery-oriented behavioral health service delivery model that has received substantial empirical support for reducing psychiatric hospitalizations, facilitating community living, and enhancing recovery for persons with serious mental illnesses.

Intensive Case Management: a client-centered, recovery-oriented service delivery model that promotes community integration, independence and an improved quality of life through the provision and coordination of on-going direct services and supports.
