The Organization’s Mandates and Stakeholders

AQCS serves individuals who have severe and persistent mental illness in two primary areas: Outpatient and Peer Support. This population, historically, is reluctant to participate in traditional treatment programs. Lack of access to quality housing and transportation resources has been a barrier for the recovery of these individuals.

Consumers are expecting AQCS to develop and provide services that are community based, meeting the needs of consumers/families in homes, schools, parks, work-places, etc. The expectation is the programs are person-centered and recovery focused. Generally, programs and services provided by AQCS are voluntary – consumers can request discharge at any time or refuse services. Even mandated consumers have choice in participation in AQCS programs. Adults in the community are assumed to be “independent” and have free will to make decisions concerning their health services.
