    Sec. 4.1. Mission statements.
    (a) The mission of State-operated facilities for persons with mental illness is to provide treatment, rehabilitation, and residential care to recipients admitted voluntarily or involuntarily because of their need for intensive services in a protective, secure setting. The Department shall offer services to a recipient within a State-operated facility as long as is necessary to accomplish stabilization of the recipient's psychiatric status and treatment regimen or arrangements for appropriate continued services. Services shall be provided in a safe, humane environment by staff with the appropriate credentials, licensure, and training. Services shall be based on professionally recognized models and shall be monitored for quality. Services shall include, but are not limited to:
        (1) Diagnosis;
        (2) Medication prescription, adjustment and
        (3) Counseling and therapy;
        (4) Assessment and psychosocial rehabilitation of
social, self-care, community living, and pre-vocational skills;
        (5) Recipient education regarding his or her illness
and compliance with required treatment regimen; and
        (6) Discharge planning and linkage with community
    All services shall be rendered with adherence to recipient rights as defined in the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code as now or hereafter amended.
    (b) Each State-operated facility shall publish a mission statement which specifically defines its role in the system of services for persons with mental illness or persons with a developmental disability. Mission statements shall be developed with reference to all relevant factors, including but not limited to:
        (1) Geographic area or areas served;
        (2) Characteristics of persons appropriate for
        (3) Bed capacity and facility model of unit
organization (e.g., catchment area, service intensity or model, projected length of stay, etc.);
        (4) Specific program, treatment, habilitation and
rehabilitation services offered;
        (5) Integration with community agencies and methods
of assuring continuity of care;
        (6) Accreditation, certification, and licensure
        (7) Staffing levels and qualifications; and
        (8) Identification of recipient groups for which an
alteration of service locus is or will be attempted and discussion of this process (e.g., deflection of voluntary psychiatric admissions to crisis programs in the community or movement of persons with moderate developmental disabilities to intermediate care facilities for persons with a developmental disability).
    Because the division of tasks between State-operated facilities and other service providers can change over time, mission statements shall be reviewed and revised every 3 years. Allowance for professional and public input shall be made and each facility shall prepare a summary of concerns regarding its operations, community linkage, inappropriately served or unserved populations, or other problems. Final publication of each mission statement shall include proposed actions to address major concerns to be undertaken by the facility and other providers in the system.
