The Alliance of Community Service Providers, Pennsylvania Council of Children, Youth and Family Services, The Committee of Seventy, and the Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation believe that to truly have a healthy and thriving Philadelphia at all levels (individual, organizational, and system), that Health and Human Services need to be a top priority to the next Mayor of Philadelphia. These organizations with support from WHYY and Children's Crisis Treatment Center held the first Health and Human Services Mayoral Forum.
Topics discussed by each candidate will included: child welfare, behavioral health, intellectual disabilities and autism, prevention and early intervention, trauma-informed care, and much more. The candidates have already received a full briefing packet of materials and had the opportunity to participate in an educational session about these issues.
