Behavioral Health

Gold Star Standards

The annual Gold Star Standards of Excellence program has a goal of encouraging, supporting and recognizing Maine’s behavioral health organizations that are addressing smoking and tobacco use by creating and maintaining smoke and tobacco-free policies. Behavioral health organizations and providers seek to optimize the health of clients and employees. Tobacco-free policies are examples of this commitment that benefits clients, employees, and the entire community.
