Behavioral Health Program

PREVENTION SERVICES (PVS)

Prevention Services are aimed at preventing the occurrence of an adverse health or safety event or to minimize its effect after it has occurred.  This is accomplished by identifying populations or groups that are at risk and engaging them in activities geared towards avoiding the risk event or arresting and reducing its consequences once it is established.  Such activities include screenings, education, wellness programs, partnering with other community resources, etc.

Behavioral Health Testimonials

Show All Testimonials
  • "Participating in the beta testing of the new behavioral health standards with ACHC allowed us to evaluate our own program and ensure it provides the highest level of patient care. We were honored to participate."

    Elizabeth (Beth) Gregory, RN,CNS, PhD
    Chronic Care Program Manager, Behavioral Health
    Amedisys Inc.

  • "In developing the Behavioral Health standards, we are utilizing the same philosophies that we ascribed to in developing all of our other service standards: ensuring they are focused on the service recipient and that they are relevant, realistic and written in easily understood language."

     

    Britt Welch
    ACHC Behavioral Health Clinical Manager

  • "Working with the professionals at ACHC, Inc. on the beta test has been a pure pleasure! Their behavioral health standards are uniquely suited to the modern practice of public mental health and community mental health, and I am excited about our upcoming site visit later this month. Going through these standards in preparation for the site visit has already resulted in improvement." 

    Bill Persinger, Jr., MA
    Executive Director
    Mental Health Center of East Central Kansas
  • "ACHC appeals to us because of the combination of the kinds of accreditation they do.  One provider can get multiple levels of accreditation from one organization."

    David Swann, CEO
    Crossroads Behavioral Health - MCO
  • "There is an expectation that the organizations (ACHC) accredits are teaching people how to manage their own lives, as opposed to maintaining them in the community.  That's an important distinction because, if you look at the programs that are successful in helping people, they believe that people can and will recover."

    Carl Noyes, CDO
    Retrospect Consulting Group
