Assertive Community Treatment Team Has Awesome Sauce

Top Scores for Easterseals UCP Team

Lillington, NC, July 27, 2018

The Assertive Community Treatment team in Lillington, North Carolina is better than ever.  They received a score of 4.4 on the Tool for Measurement of Assertive Community Treatment fidelity assessment (TMACT). To put it in perspective, the highest score is five and anything over four is considered excellent. This year’s review resulted in a score nearly one point higher than the last review.

ACT“I think the combination of strong leadership and the desire of the staff to improve fidelity coupled with their flexibility and willingness to implement new strategies and evidenced based interventions contributed to the team’s success,” said Michelle King-Stamps, Program Manager of Central Region NC Adult Mental Health Services at Easterseals UCP.

Every year, the Department of Health and Human Services reviews the Assertive Community Treatment teams at Easterseals UCP in North Carolina.  The in-depth review came back with high scores in all areas and positive comments for this hard-working team.  Assertive Community Treatment at Easterseals UCP serves adults with severe and persistent mental health needs that have not been adequately treated by more traditional treatment services.

Andrea Tippit, Assertive Community Treatment Team Lead in Lillington, is excited about the results and praises her team, “No matter what happens, the team always rises up to the challenge. Our experienced team with 20 plus years continues to work hard and find successful approaches to our cases.”

Congrats to the team: Michelle King-Stamps, Andrea Tippit, Dr. David Lane, Dr. Margaret Maytan, Chet Jernigan, Bridgett Bell, Paula McNeil, Reginald Rawls, Jody Dorman, Wade Mixon, and April Smith.
