CARF International announced that Universal MH/DD/SAS has been accredited for the fourth time for a period of three years.
This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization's substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation 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, measurable, and accountable.
Universal MH/DD/SAS is a for-profit organization that has been providing mental health and developmental disabilities services since 2003.
CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now is known as CARF, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
