Trauma Initiatives & Resources

DBHIDS is engaged and positioned to address the behavioral health challenges experienced by Philadelphians across a variety of traumatic experiences. Our strategy includes administering existing programming, increased stakeholder engagement at the CBO and community level, inclusion of best practices identified across the country, and developing new programming to ensure populations most impacted by immediate and prolonged trauma are given the resources, tools, and supports to heal and ultimately thrive.
