One of the goals of the changes in the public mental health system is to increase the number of qualified provider agencies available for you to choose from. When selecting a provider agency, one of the things you should think about is the ethics of the agency. A provider’s ethics are often an indication of the quality of care they provide. Ethics is defined as “formal or professional rules of right and wrong” and a system of conduct or behavior”. Consumers and families will usually higher quality services from provider agencies that hold themselves to high professional standards and ethics.
Look for providers who are willing to spend time talking to you about what you can expect if you choose that agency. It is crucial that you are an informed consumer and base your decision on facts and on the history of the provider agency rather than on their promotional activities.
