Emergence Health Network is proud to announce that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

EHN underwent a rigorous on-site review which compliance with behavioral health care standards related to several areas, including care, treatment, and services; the environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm was evaluated. Onsite observations and interviews also were conducted.

Established in 1969, The Joint Commission’s Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program currently accredits more than 2,250 organizations for a three-year period. Accredited organizations provide treatment and services within a variety of settings across the care continuum for individuals who have mental health, addiction, eating disorder, intellectual/developmental disability, and/or child-welfare related needs.

“EHN is pleased to receive Behavioral Health Care Accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier healthcare quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Kristi Daugherty, Chief Executive Officer EHN. “Our staff is dedicated to serving our community and this accreditation shows we are providing the quality care they need and deserve.”

Emergence Health Network is proud to help sponsor the 2018 NAMI Walks El Paso. “As the Local Mental Health Authority, EHN knows the importance of events like this because they unite our community and help to shed the stigma often associated with behavioral health issues,” said Kristi Daugherty, EHN CEO. “We hope our El Paso residents will get behind this initiative as well.”

The 2018 NAMI Walks El Paso is scheduled for Saturday, September 22, 2018.

Spotlight on Success

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Program (ChAMHP’s)

Emergence Health Network (EHN) is dedicated to helping the El Paso community with their behavioral health needs.  Often it’s the youth in our community who need help coping with life challenges.  That is why EHN offers a variety of services for teens and young adults, along with their families. David Carrera’s family is thankful that he is now getting the help he needs. “Before his treatment, life at home and at school was horrible. Now the quality of life is wonderful since he has completed high school and received his GED. Now he has a job and earned his welding certificate,” said Ofelia Carrera.  “One of the biggest challenges was when he would hurt himself. He would skip school and was using drugs, but in therapy, he learned about coping skills and how to deal with his anger and depression.”

Carrera recommends that other parents who aren’t sure how to help their children should ask for help.  “Never give up because it can get better. EHN is a place that will assist you and help your child move forward and succeed.”
