Evidence-Based Practices and DBHIDS
Over the past several decades, researchers have identified a growing number of practices that are effective in supporting people with behavioral health challenges. These evidence-based and innovative practices are important components of a resilience and recovery-oriented behavioral health system. Therefore, DBHIDS has partnered with researchers, treatment experts and providers to promote the delivery of behavioral health evidence-based practices throughout Philadelphia.
EPIC was established in 2013 to advance system-wide strategies that support the implementation, sustainability and accessibility of behavioral health evidence-based practices in Philadelphia.
Activities of EPIC include:
- Providing education and resources
- Supporting DBHIDS EBP initiatives
- Identifying key strategies for successful community implementation
- Aligning fiscal and operational policies to optimize practice impact
