Association for Community Integration Programs Although community integration programs are uniquely effective, these programs lack visibility in the overall marketplace of services for people suffering extreme psychiatric experiences. As a result, they are not on the radar screen of many mental health professionals; while people and their families who could benefit from them – including individuals with long histories in and out of hospitals – often don’t know that an alternative and effective style of psychiatric care exists. The Association for Community Integration Programs works to rectify this blind spot on both national and local levels.
