Fees for accreditation are allowable.

The deadline for applications will be Monday, November 21, 2016, at 4:00 p.m. For more information about eligibility requirements and the application, go to the Hot Topics section of the Department of Health’s homepage at www.aahealth.org, or call Sandy O’Neill, LCPC, Behavioral Health Bureau Director, at 410-222-7165.
