The Excellence in Mental Health Act (EMHA) is comprehensive legislation written specifically for the behavioral health care industry. Learn why the #CCBHC is relevant even if you’re in one of the other 42 states.
The spirit of the act provides a renewed focus on the quality of delivery and person-centered care. Health care professionals must understand that the quality objectives in the EMHA are not a directive on how to provide care, but rather benchmarks designed to support a facility’s ability to provide every client a standard of care regardless of his or her circumstance.
