    To The Provider Network:

    The City of Philadelphia has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and has been actively preparing plans and responses to prevent community spread within the Philadelphia region. In order to ensure the health and safety of our provider network, all scheduled trainings have been cancelled for the next 2 weeks. In this ever-evolving situation, we will continue to monitor the Philadelphia Department of Public Health’s recommendations. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience. DBHIDS will continue to keep you updated.

    We offer training and technical assistance to behavioral health service providers. Please follow the links below to explore the training opportunities that are available.
