DBHIDS Trauma Resources

November 3, 2020, Philadelphia — The City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services (DBHIDS) shares in the sadness and grief that have swept our city. We stand in solidarity with those directly and indirectly impacted by systemic racism, injustice, and all the resulting trauma. We firmly believe that mental illness, disabilities, and substance use disorder are not crimes. Individuals affected by these challenges have the right to treatment, recovery, wellness, and life.

In order to meet our stated mission of educating, strengthening, and serving individuals and communities so that all Philadelphians can thrive, DBHIDS partners with multiple public and private entities such as schools, city agencies, child welfare, housing, employment, and justice partners, including the police department and a network of more than 200 community-based providers who offer prevention, intervention, and 24/7 crisis services.
