Our Impact


What We Do

Map 2 .png

For the past 10 years, we've been working to strengthen behavioral health programming across Pennsylvania through expanded mental health screening, increased staff training, and access to technology.

Through multiple collaborations and grants, we've created a network of stakeholders that include clinicians and staff who work in emergency departments, schools, primary care practices, community-based organizations, and behavioral health clinics.

This network has generated best practices and high quality research that can benefit both state and local programs throughout the country. We created the hub to share this information with the public and continue our collaborative efforts outside of funding cycles.
