Tri-County Mental Health Services has earned a three year accreditation and top marks from an internationally-recognized independent accreditor of standards for mental health organizations.

The accreditor, CARF (The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is widely used as a tool for the public to gauge a provider’s commitment to quality and focus on the satisfaction of the persons served. The accreditation report also is used by Tri-County to ensure it is continuously improving its programming and quality in all areas.

The accreditation process applies the rigorous CARF internationally-recognized standards during an on-site survey.

According to the CARF findings:

  • Its drive for excellence is valued in the community and by the consumers served and it has been demonstrated recently through its being selected as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic. [link to that previous blog post]
