May Institute’s Southeastern Region Earns National Accreditation


Randolph, Mass. — May Institute’s home and school-based behavioral services in the Southeastern Region have received a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

“The organization is well known in the Atlanta area and is recognized as a national leader and model service provider for persons with disabilities,” the CARF report noted, describing May Institute as “a leader in the provision of evidence-based practices.”

CARF accreditation represents the highest level of compliance and is granted to organizations that exhibit substantial fulfillment of those standards established by the Commission. Accreditation of the Southeastern Region’s home-based and school behavioral services is a result of a rigorous peer review process and a demonstration of the highest quality, measurability, and accountability.

According to the survey summary, the quality of the professionally provided services in the Southeastern Region is “second to none,” and “teamwork, mutual respect, cooperation, and open communication are demonstrated throughout the organization.”

“Our experienced, professional staff and outstanding clinicians in the Southeastern Region and throughout the country have helped May Institute set a standard for excellence in the behavioral health field that few, if any, organizations can match,” said Walter P. Christian, Ph.D., ABPP, May Institute’s President and CEO. “To date, over 90% of the organization’s CARF-eligible programs have earned three-year accreditations. This constitutes one of the largest and most comprehensive accreditations CARF has ever awarded for a network of behavioral programs.”

May Institute’s award-winning national network serves over 25,000 individuals and their families annually at more than 200 service locations across the United States. The Institute is an active center of research and training, maintaining affiliations with more than 40 universities, hospitals, and human service agencies worldwide.
