The home-base for NNYT is with Hewitt B. “Rusty” Clark in Tampa Florida and at the Stars Behavioral Health Group (SBHG) in Long Beach California.
A provider agency or a community collaborative of agencies interested in the implementation of the TIP Model™ in their community would work with the NNYT SBHG Purveyor organization for guiding the personnel training and other implementation strategies. A transition program site might be interested in achieving certification as a TIP Model™ Site or being designated as a TIP-Informed Site. The criteria for both of these are outlined below.
NOTE 1: Regarding any of the site consultancy activities/assessments described above, the site leadership is to provide a written summary report that highlights the site’s strengths, describes areas of weakness, and includes an action plan for addressing these weaknesses and outlines the progress in strengthening these areas.
