Mental Health Agency Licensing Standards; Service-Specific Standards

In addition to the core standards, which all mental health agencies need to comply with, an agency will also be surveyed according to the services they provide. In this way, an agency is given a tailored survey that reviews the full scope of their services. This manual currently addresses the following services:

  • Community Support
  • Crisis Residential
  • Emergency
  • Inpatient
  • Outpatient
  • Residential
  • Social Clubs ²

² Social clubs are the only type of service that are not required to comply with the core standards contained in this manual.  Social clubs, due to their unique nature and services, have a separate set of standards used during the licensing process.
