The American Association of Integrative Medicine Accreditation Commission® is a voluntary review process developed to enhance quality improvement in mental health or integrative healthcare practices, in which competency, authority, and credibility are demonstrated. All mental health or integrative healthcare practices are permitted to apply for accreditation.
The American Association of Integrative Medicine Accreditation Commission® advocates and supports the practice of multi-disciplinary approaches in mental health or integrative healthcare as a bond between Eastern and Western medicine. AAIM Accreditation Commission promotes higher standards of professional healthcare through accreditation to benefit the patient or client, the public, and the healthcare provider. Accreditation is a voluntary, self-regulatory process by which non-governmental associations recognize mental health and integrative healthcare practices that have been found to meet or exceed standards of professional competency in mental health or integrative healthcare.
The AAIM Accreditation Commission is founded on the belief that specialized accreditation contributes to the welfare of patients or clients, healthcare providers, and the public and provides maintenance and enhancement of high standards for mental health and integrative healthcare service delivery. Accreditation indicates to the public as well as to the community that the mental health or integrative healthcare practice has met and is in compliance with the established standards of the AAIM Accreditation Commission.
