How does ACMHS manage medications for the mentally ill?

  • ACMHS employs prescribers who treat consumers on an individual basis to assess, diagnose, and if appropriate, prescribe medications to treat symptoms.
  • Consumers (or their representatives) are given information and make informed decisions on the medication regime that they and their prescriber determine is right for them.
  • Clinician and Case management level staffs work with consumers to support them and determine effectiveness of their treatment and report back to their prescriber.
  • ACMHS does not require mandatory medication compliance. Consumers have the final decision as whether to take the medication or not.
