These regulations are issued as a basic framework for community mental health programs to establish acceptable treatment and/or rehabilitation practices as well as management policies and procedures which define their approach to consumer care. The intent of these regulations is to establish standards of community mental health services which will facilitate a program's effective use of resources by focusing a high priority on the issues involving quality. Compliance with these regulations indicates the program's capacity to systematically manage community mental health services.
