TTI’s employment team scores among top in state in recent review

TTI’s Individual Placement and Support (IPS) program received Exemplary Fidelity status in a fidelity review conducted in September. This extensive, two-day review was performed by the Michigan Fidelity and Assessment Team (MiFAST) contracted through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The MiFAST reviewers used a scale divided into three sections – staffing, organization and services – and 26 protocols to determine TTI’s score. They also interviewed the IPS team, other TTI employees, and individuals receiving services. TTI ultimately received a score of 116 out of 125, which makes them “exemplary” and puts them among only three teams in the state to score at this level.

In addition to receiving high marks, TTI’s IPS team was commended for “passion, dedication, respect and knowledge … regarding the IPS model.” The reviewers also said, “They (IPS) are a strong team that assists individuals in realizing their dreams and capabilities and helps them achieve those dreams.”

TTI’s IPS program is an evidence-based supported employment model designed to help individuals with mental illness find jobs in the competitive marketplace. IPS tailors employment services to match the person’s needs, talents and preferences.
