P03 An In-Depth Review of NCCHC's 2015 Standards for Mental Health Services*

The Standards for Mental Health Services in Correctional Facilities provides a framework for improved mental health care delivery and outcomes in adult correctional facilities. The foundation of NCCHC’s mental health accreditation program, these standards parallel those for health services in format and substance, but they make more explicit what the standards require for adequate delivery of mental health services. Whether or not your facility plans to be accredited, this seminar will explain what the standards say with regard to the areas of care and treatment, clinical records, administration, personnel, legal issues and more. The registration fee includes a copy of the mental health Standards, an $80 value. 7 CE credits
