The National Council and Relias Partner to Move the Nation Toward Excellence in Behavioral Health

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the Excellence in Mental Health Act, mental health and addiction treatment organizations now have new accountability and responsibility requiring skilled staff and effective leadership to move toward becoming Centers of Excellence.

To support our member organizations in this, the National Council partnered with Relias to launch a new certification program for National Council members who are Relias customers, Certificates of Excellence, to support behavioral health CEOs’ efforts to train their staff to prepare for national implementation of the Excellence Act.

“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. We want to support all National Council member organizations in becoming Centers of Excellence.”
– Linda Rosenberg
