Harbor Behavioral Healthcare awarded three-year CARF accreditation
CARF announced that Harbor Behavioral Healthcare, a not-for-profit mental health and wellness agency, has been accredited for a period of three years for its Community Employment Services including: Job Development, Job Supports, and Job-Site training.
The latest accreditation is the second consecutive Three-Year Accreditation outcome that the international accrediting commission has awarded to Harbor Behavioral Healthcare.
CARF surveyors made no recommendations, which signifies that they did not identify any areas of non-conformance to Harbor’s standards—only 3 percent of CARF surveys result in no recommendations.
This accreditation outcome represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization—an organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation outcome has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurables, and accountability.
