Wilder's Southeast Asian Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team: Literature Review of Cultural Adaptations and Enhancements of the ACT Model

To understand barriers to mental health care among Asian Americans, this literature review broadly reviews cultural beliefs and behaviors related to mental health and the mismatch with the western model of behavioral health care delivery. It also examines efforts to make behavioral health services more culturally relevant to Asian Americans, with a focus on cultural adaptations of evidence-based treatment models and frameworks for cultural adaptation. Finally, it examines many adaptations and enhancements that Wilder’s ACT team has made to meet the needs of their Southeast Asian clients.
