The Canadian Mental Health Association – Sudbury/Manitoulin (CMHA-S/M) was awarded the highest level of accreditation – Accredited with Exemplary Standing – after participating in Accreditation Canada’s Qmentum program in 2014. CMHA-SM is committed to improving client outcomes, safety and continuous quality improvement and to this end, continues to work to maintain their standing. As participants of this program we participate in an on-site survey once every four years during which our services are evaluated against nationally recognized standards of excellence.
As a community based mental health organization CMHA-SM is committed to offering safe, efficient and effective care to the individuals we serve. We are striving for excellence in all areas including governance, leadership, infection prevention and control, medication management and mental health services.
Our next Accreditation survey and evaluation will be taking place in February 2018. In preparation staff, leadership and the board of directors have completed self-assessment surveys and have had the opportunity to celebrate their successes and identify areas of focus. They will continue to work together to ensure CMHA-S/M is in compliance with specific standards of excellence and taking and are continuing to offer the highest quality of care.
