The city known for its mouthwatering Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches is also recognized as one of the most historical cities in the country. Philadelphia was the capital of the United States during the construction of the Washington DC area; today more than 1.5 million residents live in the area1. Tourists might visit the city to view the Liberty Bell,Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed, or any number of sporting events presented by the Philadelphia Flyers, Phillies, 76ers, and the Superbowl-Champion Eagles. In addition to the rich history that Philadelphia offers, it is also home to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, several Fortune 500 companies, Drexel University, Temple University, and the University of Pennsylvania.

 

Mental Health Statistics
The Pennsylvania Department of Mental Health reported that 45% of all Philadelphia County residentshad at least one poor mental health day in any one month in 2011. For residents over the age of 65, 43% experienced limitations due to physical, emotional, or mental problems. Alcohol use was reported as being a problem for 8% of adults, and 25% of all county adults reported binge drinking at least once every month2. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reported that between 2005 and 2010, 16.6% of Philadelphia-area residents had used illicit drugs and 9.5% had a substance abuse problem3.

 

PhiladelphiaCoordinates Care to Ensure Success
Residents living in the Philadelphia area have access to 30 residential treatment providers, 30 specialized healthcare service agencies, 11 community mental and behavioral health facilities, and 5 crisis emergency-response locations, all overseen by the Office of Mental Health (OMH), which serves more than 40,000 residents each year. The specific programs available to residents in need include crisis emergency and intervention, prevention, individual and group therapy, support for families, inpatient programs,rehabilitation,and several other services designed to meet particular mental health needs4.

 

The Coordinated Consumer Services (CCS) division is the clinical branch of the OMH and is comprised of four unique departments which oversee residential operations, admission, discharges, planning, and case management. Working together, each department provides a continuum of care for those involved in the criminal justice system or those receiving inpatient and acute care5.

 

The OMH also provides essential care to children with emotional and behavioral problems. Working with parents, educators, and professionals, the OMH aims to provide support, hope, and advocacy for area children with mental health challenges. Some of the unique resources they are able to offer residents are family-based mental healthcare, adolescent and youth drug and alcohol services, and prevention services.The Madeline Moore Summer Camp Grant helps children with emotional disabilities realize the dream of attending a summer camp. The OMH also recognize the impact that behavioral problems have on academic success and offers its residents educational assistance if needed. Respite services for caregivers are also available so that they can take the time they need to care for themselves6.
