(Fort Lauderdale, FL) - Henderson Behavioral Health has become the first organization, worldwide, to receive CARF Accreditation specifically for Student Counseling Services. CARF International is the preeminent accrediting body for non-profit behavioral health systems like Henderson Behavioral Health. Henderson provides Student Counseling Services at their Davie, Florida location to students at Nova Southeastern University and Broward College. The two Universities serve over 100,000 students in Florida.

During the recent CARF survey, Henderson Behavioral Health received "no recommendations" which signifies that the surveyor did not identify any areas of nonconformance to the standards; a feat recognized by CARF President/ CEO, Brian J. Boon, Ph.D., as "an extraordinary accomplishment, as only 3 percent of CARF surveys result in no recommendations."

Dr. Steven Ronik, Henderson's CEO remarked, "This is an incredible achievement and milestone for Henderson Behavioral Health, our University partners, and of course, the over 100,000 students we are responsible to daily. It is especially gratifying to know we are the first CARF International Accredited Student Counseling Program--worldwide. Our goal has always been to provide the most compassionate, evidence-based care possible to our Student-clients. Our accreditation achievement supports that goal."

Henderson Behavioral Health is South Florida's oldest and largest non-profit behavioral health system and has been in Florida since 1953. They provide services at more than 20 locations across South Florida and are committed to evidence-based practices. Learn more at www.hendersonbehavioralhealth.org
