This week, the National Council, in partnership with Relias Learning, launched a new certification program to support behavioral health treatment providers. “Centers of Excellence” are the pinnacle of the new certification program that offers providers a guide to help advance their practices into the 21st century.

With the new health care landscape, providers, states and stakeholders are shifting their focus to the concept of Centers of Excellence and Certified Community Behavioral Health Centers, and these continued education (CE) opportunities can help augment CEOs’ efforts to train their staff to prepare for national implementation of the Excellence Act in years to come.

The Certificates of Excellence program offers:

  • Extensive online library offering—mental health, substance abuse, management, supervision and more
  • Compliance with national, state and accrediting training standards
  • Ability to upload organization policies, procedures and content
  • Simplified training assignment, tracking and reporting
  • Convenient training available 24/7

“We have new accountability for health outcomes, and this responsibility requires both skilled staff and effective leadership. I am excited to introduce the Certificates of Excellence program,” said Linda Rosenberg, president and CEO of the National Council. “We want to support all National Council member organizations in becoming Centers of Excellence.”

Eric Masters, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships at Relias Learning said in a statement, “We are honored to work with National Council to deliver this certification program that can impact so many people and raise the bar for skilled staff and leadership effectiveness. Working together, we’ve built a program that will deliver tremendous content and benefits to National Council members.”
