- Community Relations
The Community Relations Department is responsible for increasing the knowledge and awareness of the behavioral health system throughout Philadelphia. The Community Relations Department provides information about the behavioral health service delivery system, including how individuals seeking recovery and their families can access available services.
One of the primary goals of the Community Relations Department is to help DBHIDS improve collaboration with other agencies and organizations to better serve the behavioral health needs of Philadelphians.
To that end, the Community Relations Department develops and expands working partnerships with social service agencies, community groups and faith-based organizations. The goal of these partnerships is to improve the way DBHIDS reaches and serves citizens that need behavioral health services to deal with mental illness, substance abuse or intellectual disability challenges.
