The ACT team was set up in the heart of Chinatown. It has high fidelity to the ACT model. Its innovations are in the operational aspects of the team. Of the 90 clients, 45% are Chinese (80% Cantonese speaking; 20% Mandarin), 21% Tamil, 16% Vietnamese, 7% Korean or Japanese, and 6% Afro-Caribbean, and 5% are from other minority groups. Seventy-two percent of the clients live in boarding homes or supported housing, 16% live with family, and 12% live independently. Ninety-four percent have schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder; 6% have bipolar affective disorder. English is not the first language for 82% of the clients, 32% are unable to communicate in English, and 35% have no family members in Canada. Eighty percent of the clients are first-generation immigrants from Asian countries. Of this group 58% are unfamiliar and uncomfortable with mainstream culture or with negotiating activities of daily living, such as getting telephone services, obtaining financial assistance, or finding housing. Informed by these facts, team members are selected to match the clients' language and cultural backgrounds: ten of the 11 staff members speak one of the main target group languages—Chinese, Tamil, Vietnamese, or Korean. Sixty-seven percent of the clients are matched with workers in both language and ethnicity and communicate in languages other than English.
