Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services

What we do

The Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) works with the Philadelphia School District, child welfare and judicial systems, and with families and communities to provide care and services for:

  • People with mental illness.
  • People struggling with addictions.
  • People with intellectual disabilities.

We embrace a vision of recovery, resilience, and self-determination through a model of care that is directed by the person in recovery. In this model, professional treatment, along with family, individual, and other resources, allows people to manage their own conditions and build their own recovery resources.

We also help people with intellectual disabilities live self-determined lives in their communities by providing quality support and services.
