Developmental Disabilities and Behavioral Health Facilities
A Mental Health Center is a facility where shelter, food, and counseling, diagnosis, treatment, care, or related services are provided for a period of more than twenty-four consecutive hours to persons residing at such facility who have a mental disease, disorder, or disability.
Exceptions: Licensing does not apply to:
- Self-run programs - a program, which may be residential, which is operated by persons with mental diseases, disorders, or disabilities for their own benefit. If a mental health practitioner is involved in a self-help program it is only in an advisory or informational rather than a supervisory or administrative capacity.
- A home, apartment or facility which does not exercise minimum supervision over the personal care, activities of daily living or health maintenance of clients.
