Community Affairs Unit
The DBHIDS Community Affairs Unit works to ensure that all Philadelphians have access to wellness, recovery, and peer-support services in their own communities.
Community Affairs Units’ efforts to increase access to services and enhance the behavioral health and well-being of all Philadelphians is accomplished via:
- Community Outreach and Engagement Unit: COE develops partnerships, strategies, and resources to bring awareness to the importance of emotional wellness in keeping with the principles of DBHIDS’ population health approach. Initiatives include Faith and Spiritual Affairs and Mural Arts / Porch Light.
- Community Wellness Engagement Unit: CWEU’s multilingual engagement team providing greater access to wellness-related resources and support for all communities.
- Peer Culture and Community Inclusion Unit: PCCI actively engages, supports, and models the promotion of hope, wellness, and empowerment throughout the behavioral health system of Philadelphia and beyond.
