Abstract Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is known to have a positive impact on the number and length of inpatient stays. Yet, research is needed in order to help understand how ACT programs may ease off families' burden, e.g. in terms of economic expenditures. Indeed, many families with siblings suffering from chronic mental illness, who disengaged from psychiatric services, report needs related to ACT. This paper aims to describe the impact of a new ACT program in Geneva on patients and their families' burden.
