Product Description

Product Description

The PDF version of the 2023 Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Behavioral Health Care and Human Services (CAMBHC) provides all official Joint Commission standards, elements of performance (EPs), National Patient Safety Goals®, and other accreditation requirements, including those for the optional Behavioral Health Home certification. 
Please note: This PDF manual is a digital version of the hard-copy Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Behavioral Health Care and Human Services with standards effective January 1, 2023. It is published annually and is not updated. 
Understanding Which Standards Apply. The Joint Commission surveys many types of organizations under the behavioral health care and human services standards, including mental health services, addiction treatment, eating disorders treatment, intellectual disability/developmental disability (ID/DD) services, and social service/human service agencies serving children and families. Accredited organizations may serve people throughout the life span or specialize in an age group or a disability group. (See the section on Settings below for a longer list of services and settings.) Eligibility requirements will differ based on the services provided and survey option you select; more information is available on The Joint Commission’s website. Standards for all these settings and services appear in the 2023 CAMBHC. The “Standards Applicability Grid” chapter helps each organization determine which standards and EPs in the manual apply to its setting(s), service(s), program(s), and specific population(s). These applicability grids allow you to  identify the services and settings, as you identified them in your E-App, and find  standards that apply to your organization. In contrast, the E-dition® on an accredited organization’s Joint Commission Connect® extranet site provides a customized manual based on the settings and services checked on your E-App. (That is, the E-dition®only displays an organization-specific complement of standards and EPs).
Key Topics:
  • Standards requirements, including the standards, National Patient Safety Goals®, and Accreditation Participation Requirements effective January 1, 2023
  • Standards and EPs for optional Behavioral Health Home certification
  • Accreditation process information about Joint Commission policies and procedures and practical survey preparation information on the Early Survey Policy, documentation requirements, standards applicability, and more
Key Features:
  • Icons to help navigate documentation requirements as well as risk areas
  • “What’s New” summary of changes
  • PDF format—printable, downloadable, and accessible
Standards: All behavioral health care and human services standards
Setting: Organizations accredited under the Behavioral Health Care and Human Services Accreditation Program, including those that that provide mental health services, substance use treatment services, foster care services, programs or services for children and youth, child welfare, services for individuals with eating disorders, services for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities of various ages and in various organized service or program settings, case management services, peer-based recovery services, prevention and wellness promotion services, corrections-based services, and opioid treatment programs
