While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental health illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health. “We know that mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being,” said Kristi Daugherty Emergence Health Network Chief Executive Officer. “When it comes to getting help, EHN has been serving our residents for decades. This year we are celebrating 55 years in our community which is a testament to the quality care we provide both as the Local Mental Health Authority (LMHA) and Local Intellectual Developmental Disabilities Authority (LIDDA.)”

In fact, this year Emergence Health Network also received its accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. Earning NCQA’s Accreditation of Case Management for Long-Term Supports & Services (LTSS) for individuals with Developmental Disabilities (DD) demonstrates that an organization is dedicated to coordinating the delivery of care in a person-centered and integrated manner to help individuals function optimally in their preferred setting.  EHN is also the only Certified Community Behavioral Health Center in El Paso and is Joint Commission Accredited.
