On Friday, May 13th marked the dedication of the AllOne Foundation Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) at Children’s Service Center, commemorating a $1.2 million grant awarded by AllOne Foundation to improve access to mental health and addiction services for the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
The AllOne CCBHC at Children’s Service Center is designed to alleviate the inadequate availability of evidence-based approaches to mental health and addiction treatment, and the absence of an integrated approach to behavioral health and primary care. The grant will foster activities to prevent drug overdose/suicide and support innovative partnerships among law enforcement, schools and health providers to deliver evidence-base care, prevent hospitalization, and improve quality of life.
Children’s Service Center is celebrating 160 years of uninterrupted service in 2022. Together with its adult care affiliate, Robinson Counseling Center, this leading behavioral health network served 11,000+ NEPA residents in 2021.
