Gaston and Mecklenburg ACT Teams Receive High State Scores
Both the Mecklenburg and Gaston Assertive Community Treatment Teams (ACTT) received high fidelity scores for their work this month.
ACTT teams, which are designed to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and support to persons with serious and persistent mental illness, are reviewed by the state through a system known as the tool for measurement of assertive community treatment, or TMACT.
The Gaston team received a 3.8 out of five. Across the state, a 3.0 is a passing score.
Sharita Shelby, M.A.,LPC, Gaston ACT team lead, said the TMACT score is more than just an indication of state evaluation, it is an indication of a team working collaboratively to support the people we serve.
“I am proud that this quality evaluation was able to catch a glimpse of what we do daily and it accurately represents our day-to-day commitment to provide a consistent level of quality work,” Shelby said.
The Mecklenburg team (pictured above) was also excited to receive a score of 3.9 out of five.
“The TMACT score represents the hard work and dedication that every member of our team possesses for the people that we serve and our team as a whole,” said Janis Turner, MSW, LCAS, LCSWA, CSI, Mecklenburg ACT Team Lead.
“I am overwhelmed with gratitude to have a team of staff who love their jobs and demonstrate such tremendous enthusiasm while doing it,” Turner continued. “The TMACT score represents the overall character of the Mecklenburg ACT Team.”
